Screen Capture Video Not Playing Video

Mr. Video,

I have done a screen capture video (15 min long) using camstudio and recorded it per your specs and redered it as an .avi file...

I need to convert it to MP4 format or compatible for streaming off of an Amazon S3 server. I am using Any Video Converter to go from .avi to mp4 format...

The video takes a long time to load and the audio does not play. In the end the mp4 is about 32mb...

I am not really sure if it is a different spec I need to re-render the .avi file as or the file needs to be broken up...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bill,

Very difficult to comment as to what the problem might be without being there I'm afraid. The size isn't the issue, although a bit big for web video.

Camstudio is a bit buggy and I've heard other people have some problems with the audio as well.

I strongly recommend you use www.jing.com for screen-capture video. It is the best free screen-capture software available today and saves as mp4.

The creators, Techsmith (Who also make Camtasia) also offer some free hosting for Jing videos at screencast.com

It's a very stress-free way for adding HQ screen-capture video to your website.

Hope that helps?

Mr Video :-)
