Format and Platform
When recording videos from OBS, I save the files as MKV because this format allows me to retain the recorded parts even if my PC experiences technical issues or power outages. However, since I need to upload my videos to Facebook, I must convert them to MP4 format. Additionally, I need to confirm that the file audio is good, and since I speak a little slowly, I need to speed up the video.
To simplify this process, I have written a batch script that combines all of these tasks into one command.
  1. Install https://ffmpeg.org/
  1. Download or Copy the following:
I named the file convert.bat and placed it inside my videos folder. Now, I can simply run:
./convert.bat video_name.mkv
