MPEG4 (or MP4) is perhaps the most popular format for video files these days, being the format of choice for many applications, web sites and web services. This article explains how to create videos in the MP4 format using RightBooth.
Note: You will need RightBooth 6.1.27 (or later).
Now each time you record a video using RightBooth, the recorded file will be automatically converted to MP4 after the recording has finished. This conversion will be performed by the free utility Handbrake. You can also choose to convert to MP4 using the free utility FFMPEG, but we have found that Handbrake can produce better results, converts in less time and produces files that are compatible with more devices.
Note that in order for this conversion process to work you will first need to add the HandbrakeCLI conversion utility onto your computer. Read this article to find out how. If you prefer to use FFMPEG for the conversion, read this.
Affecting the Conversion
Clicking the Conversion settings button (shown in the screenshot above) will reveal the Conversion settings panel.
Here you can change the size of the converted file, the frame rate and the conversion quality.
Experiment with these settings until you obtain the best conversion for your requirements. These settings are particularly useful if you need to reduce the size of your video recordings such that they become small enough to be emailed to event users with the RightBooth email feature.
