Capturing an MP4 video requires using a video capturing program to capture and save the video. VideoDVDMaker Pro can capture videos as they play on screen, StudioPro records videos from input devices, and Replay Media Capture records online videos.
Download the video-capture software by choosing the Save option in the dialog box from the download link. Choose the Open option once the download is complete, and follow the instructions to install the program.
To capture a video using the VideoDVDMaker Pro, launch the program, and click the Capture tab. Select a video source from the drop-down menu, click the Start icon, and then press Play on the video source to start playing the video. Click the Finish icon when the video ends, and save the file as prompted. VideoDVDMaker Pro is more suitable for capturing videos from external devices such as camcorders since it requires recognizing an input device from its drop-down menu.
To capture a video using StudioPro, launch the program from the desktop or from the application folder. Play the MP4 video from source, and then click on the Record icon. Choose a file name and a storage folder for the video as prompted. When the video has finished playing, click the Stop icon.
To capture a video using the Replay Media Capture, launch the program, click on the Start Recording icon, and play the MP4 video. This software captures and converts online videos and can record even as the video plays in the background.
