File Types Recorded by Livestream Studio™

Livestream Studio's hi-resolution ISO recordings are saved as Motion JPEG .avi at the selected project format spec. Recordings are saved in a user selected destination folder (by default, you can find the files in the Videos folder). 


You can record these clips into either Media Bin for immediate playback even while the recording is still active. Additionally, clips recorded locally on Livestream Studio can be used in Blackmagic Media Express and any editing software (Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, etc.) with the Blackmagic codec pack installed.


In addition to hi-resolution ISO recordings, Livestream Studio has options to record smaller, H.264 .mp4 files.


By default, Livestream Studio records an H.264 .mp4 file while you are streaming as a back-up recording. You can find the options for this under the Streaming tab in settings.

To reduce CPU usage, select Highest Quality Only. This will record only the highest bitrate selected when you go live, whereas All Qualities will record each bitrate you stream at as separate files.

To do an .mp4 recording without streaming, go to the Stream tab, then select Stream to File.

You can choose where the .mp4 gets saved to. You also have the option to record each bitrate you select in the next step (unchecking this option will only record the highest quality).

Title your recording, select it's quality and aspect ratio. When you are ready to start encoding, click Go Live at the bottom.

Click the red Streaming button to stop the recording.
