Publish a Captivate demonstration to MP4 format

After you have finished creating your slides, recording your demonstration materials, formatting the text, adjusting the timings, and maximizing the output quality, you're ready to publish your video. We will use MP4 as the output format, because MP4 is the industry standard for web video. In addition, YouTube understands MP4 as a format, making the conversion to a YouTube video faster than with other video types.
