    Q&A: Tips from our Support Forum
    1. Digital Media Converter: Compressors listed under the compatibility tab
      Q. I am looking forward to effectively use this program that at first use seems very promising for its easy to use, visibility of installed decoder and forum.
        I am trying to convert AVI to Mpeg4, Morgan M-JPEG2000, MICROSOFT VIDEO 1 or DivX (you consider some of these excellent). If I go on Setting > Compatibility I see some Mpeg4 decoders and the Morgan MJPEG2000 VFW within a long list of decoders.
        I see several decompressor but on the Convert to Format I see only Mpeg 1,2, some WMxx and few others but I don't see Mpeg4 nor MJPEG2000 although the latter is correctly installed.
        Thank You in advance for your help.
        Kindest Regards


      A. Microsoft MPEG-4 Video codec, Morgan M-JPEG2000, Microsoft Video 1 and DivX are all AVI video compressors and not formats. The list displayed under 'Convert To' are the available 'formats' to which Digital Media Converter can convert into.
        Not to be miss-understood, MPEG-4 is also a format. But Microsoft MPEG-4 video codecs are different. They use the MPEG-4 standard to compress AVI files. The files themselves are not MPEG-4 format, but AVI format.
        The compatibility tab lists all types of compressors, decompressors, decoders and encoders (collectively referred to as Filters) installed on your computer. Digital Media Converter may not use many of these filters. The compatibility is used to disable conflicting filters only in Digital Media Converter.
        To use one of the mentioned AVI video compressors:
    1. On the File menu, click Settings.
    2. Under the General Settings tab, from the Convert To box, select AVI.
    3. Select the Properties tab.
    4. From the Video Compressor box, select the compressor you want.
    5. Click OK.
        This will output to AVI format and compress the AVI file using the selected video compressor.

    Featured Article : Creating screen recordings for web streaming
    Making a demo by capturing your screen activity is the first step towards communicating with your audience. Making these presentations easily accessible is the next step, which is perhaps as important as making the demo itself.
    With My Screen Recorder Pro, you can make great screen recordings and distribute them in a variety of ways. One unique way is to prepare your screen recordings for distribution on the web.
    My Screen Recorder Pro has a Publishing wizard that simplifies the process of creating and distributing your screen recordings into two steps.
    1. Creating a screen recording in a format suitable for streaming.
    2. Publishing these recordings to the streaming server.
