Question / Help Will OBS for Mac allow MP4 file output?

Hello! :)
I am just here asking if there is plans, or make a request (if that is a thing one can do) to make a MP4 file output option. It is very annoying having to convert my videos into MP4 and then the video gets out of sync. So I was just wandering if this was in the works, or it just doesn't work with Mac.

Thank You Very Much!

You can already record in other formats.

Under output, enable Advanced Mode, and in the Recording tab, choose Custom (FFmpeg) output. Then you can put whatever extension you want on the output file, and it will record to that format.

I am using OBS 0.8.3 on win7 64x, whenever I select custom output (ffmpeg) it simply won't allow me to record. I press start record and nothing happens. Not sure what I am doing wrong here.

Does it give you an error? Have you set up the recording settings correctly? Can you post a log/screenshot your ffmpeg settings?
 
I was able to get this to work following the instructions in post #2. I did notice that audio and video started out of sync and got worse as the video progressed though. Over the course of a roughly 4 minute gameplay the two were out of sync by a very noticeable amount at the end. MP4 was the format I chose
 
No error, I click once and the start recording button will play the animation, but it will not record.

Looking at your screenshot I can tell you what I did differently from you.. I set the file name with the extension. I think that is your issue.. Don't just choose the location but also name the file, complete with the extension for the format you want to record to.

Sorry I forgot to mention I had tried that with .mp4 same results.

The FFmpeg output is kind of advanced at the moment; if you need mp4 then you can currently just save as FLV and then remux (converts without re-encoding), but we will be adding actual mp4/etc muxers so you can output directly to mp4 later on as well.

Awesome, thanks.
