Having trouble importing?

Make sure that your videos are saved in a compatible format. 

On iOS, you can access your camera settings by visiting, Settings > Camera > Formats and choose Most Compatible.


The settings vary on Android devices, but they are typically in the camera app. The Screencast-O-Matic app cannot import videos that are saved in High Efficiency (HEIF or HEVC) mode. You'll want to choose JPEG/H.264 or Most Compatible.
