Movie and MP4 format

Is it possible to create other video formats like MP4 with the CVB Movie Tool?

At first we need to differentiate between video container and video codec.

If you want to save to another video container like *.mp4 or *.mkv the answer is no.
CVB Movie is limited to AVI container files only.

Using video codecs like MPEG4, H264, etc. is possible with CVB Movie. The resulting file is an AVI-file containing a video stream with this codec.
To be able to use these kind of codecs you need to install a DirectShow version of the codec you want to use.
Then this codec will be visible in the list of available codecs which can be selected before the recording is started.
