Livestream Studio has a video transcoder built into its Media bins.
In your media bin, press the + button in the bottom left corner.
Browse your computer for your video, then select it from the file explorer. Livestream Studio will begin transcoding your video immediately.
If your video file is a Motion JPEG AVI and matches your project format, the media bin will not need to transcode the file. Systems that have hardware encoding can also directly import H.264 MP4 files of the same project format.
Transcoding time depends on the clip length.
If you are having trouble transcoding your video, check that it can successfully playback in Windows Media Player. Videos that cannot be played in Window Media Player will likely not be able to be transcoded in Livestream Studio's media bins.
