VodBurner has a range of features including inbuilt editing to produce a high quality Skype video production.  We understand that sometimes you might want to record a quick Skype video (to make a side by side video recording without the need to edit the video).  Here is how you can record direct to MP4 with VodBurner.

Disadvantages of Direct to MP4 mode:

– No editing (video files can’t be edited within VodBurner but you can edit them in a video editing app of your choice)
– Lower quality (best results require Intel 2nd Gen i3/i5/i7 CPU or later)
