Video Recording settings

Try these best settings so that your video should record in good quality and resolution.

  • In the Video Recorder settings, first select where to save the recorded video and give it a filename prefix if need be.
  • From the drop down menu select the video format you’ll want the player to use for the recording.
  • For maximum flexibility, MKV is the best choice as it gives you the widest choice of video and audio codecs to use (lossy and lossless ones). 

MP4 is however the most widely used format and so that’s most likely what you’ll want to use. The caveat though is that will lessen the choice of codecs you can use.
