Convert a Video File for Easy Playback and Upload

When recording a session, you may need to use a video recorder that outputs videos to an older or incompatible format.  This may result in some users unable to playback a video in Supervision Assist. 

You may fix this, by converting your video to an MP4. I have included a link to a guide and tool that may be used on a PC or MAC.

Convert to MP4 using PC or MAC

Recommended Tool: Handbrake 

  1. Download and install Handbrake
  2. Select the file you wish to upload to Supervision Assist
  3. Recommended Settings 
    1. Under Preset, select Fast 720p30 (This will reduce the file size to make it easier to upload.)
    2. Select Format, make sure it is set as MP4 (This should be default)
    3. Under Format, select the "Web Optimized" checkbox.
  4. Click Start Encode
  5. Upload this new file to Supervision Assist using the Upload Guide below.
  6. DELETE ANY LOCAL AN UNSECURED VIDEO FILES! We are not responsible for video recordings of files stored on a local computer or phone.
