VSee Tip #7 – VSee Recording Playback and Convert from MKV File

VSee saves recorded video as Matroska (.mkv) files. To play a file, you can use VLC media player for playing MKV files on both Windows and Mac.  You can also check out other some alternatives to VLC here.

Set up VLC to Play Videos Side-by-Side

VLC for Windows view

  1. Go to Tools->Preference
  2. Uncheck the boxes for
    • “Allow only one instance” and
    • “Use only one instance when started from file manager”
  3. Save the settings.  (This will allow you to launch more then one instance of VLC player so you can play multiple videos simultaneously.)

Playing Back Videos Side-by-Side

To play all videos at the same time, in the file manager, highlight all the videos to be played at the same time, then hit “Play.”

Converting Your MKV File for Editing

Special thanks to VSee user, Tony Dennis, Founder of Freedom Star Project for the following tip.

The program I found to convert MKV files at a decent quality is Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate

Also if the client needs to extract the audio from the video without any loss at all (MKV is just like a folder that combines the audio and video) this is the program: MKV Extract GUI

This will allow people to take the audio and edit in a separate program and add it back to the video with other video editing software.
