Hi everyone!

I am currently wanting to start using OBS over ScreenFlow but I have some issues. I read that its best to record in MKV or FLV over mp4 so I have changed to recording with that and I am also recording on to an external Lacie Hd (I was told less strain on the computer)

Now, when I come to playback the recording its fine if I just watch from beginning to the end but as soon as I try to skip through the video to check it, it starts to freeze and glitch. How can this be fixed? I have attached some screenshots of my screenflow settings to help...

I also need to be able to convert to mp4 so any advice on the best way to do that would also be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
