Linux Mint 18.3 64-bit
Sony Vaio (2011)
6 GB RAM
I want to record an mp4 video directly with my webcam.
I would like to know about any program that has yielded good results.
In Linux Mint 18.3 Software Manager, I see the following programs for video recording:
1. OBS Studio - Live streaming and video recording software
2. MythTV - Personal video recorder application (client and server)
3. I already have VLC installed. I am researching now whether it is a recording program.
I am not trying to record and save a video from the web. I want to use my own webcam to record a video of myself.
Other equipment I have available is
A. a Canon XA10 Camcorder. But it records into only AVCHD files. The Canon manual has no index listing for "conversion" or "file types".
B. a Yi 4k+ action camera that records directly into mp4. Images are better quality than the webcam. I can hook this up to a tripod and record directly. Since there is only a small builit-in mic, I am not sure about the sound quality.
I will then send the video by email or skype.
Any suggestions appreciated.
