 I would like to participate in the O Holy Night project but I am not familiar with MP4.  I have participated in other virtual projects in the past, just recording with Logitech camera and uploading video to youtube.  This time I would use an Android tablet to record.  How can I tell what the format is?  I may have to skip this project due to computer illiteracy.

I believe Android devices record MP4 by default. (At least mine does.)

@cantdance I have no experience with any OS's besides Windows and Linux so I may not know what the limitations/features an Android tablet might have. 

In windows, most of the video capture software allows saving camera video to a file in several formats .MP4 is usually one of the extensions available. I use the Debut Video Capture software from NCH to record using a Logitech webcam and a SnowBall ICE microphone (I could use the build in mic on the webcam, but it's a bit far away when I record).

Try checking your capture software and click on save file and see if it offers different file extensions (mov, avi, mp4...).

Don't get defeated by this computer stuff, there's a lot of help available on this forum and I'm sure others with pipe in with details that are Android specific.

Good Luck and look forward to seeing/hearing you soon..

Though I prefer you sending MP4, I can convert your file if necessary. I've converted hundreds of files. It's just time consuming but I prefer that you send your submission than not doing so because of the format.

The reason I want everyone to use MP4 is because it's the most common, best compression vs quality, and when all files are the same my Mac won't smoke as much when mixing. 🙂

The surgeon general has determined that smoking is bad for you. So tell Mac to stop 🙂
