TREC to MP4 - How to Finish the Conversion for Better Compatibility

Since videos in TREC can only be opened in Camtasia, in this tutorial, I will introduce ways to convert TREC to MP4, AVI, and other common formats for free.

Preview - What Are Camtasia and TREC 

Q: I have a batch of recorded videos in TREC but can't upload them to YouTube. How should I convert these TREC to MP4 or other formats?

If you like recording and editing videos, you must know Camtasia, a screen capture and video editing program similar to Fraps. It's able to record videos from different sources like YouTube and Twitch and add special effects or remarks in your video. However, the recordings created by Camtasia are all in .trec, an exclusive video format that can only be opened and viewed in Camtasia which means you can’t upload this kind of videos to YouTube directly or play them on any standard media player.

Yes, it seems quite inconvenient compared with other common video formats that have much better compatibility. So, in the following tutorial, I will introduce several ways to convert .trect to .mp4, .avi, and other video formats with both Camtasia and a third-party video converter.

4.       Choose MP4 as the output format and begin the conversion.


Part 2 How to Convert TREC to AVI and Other Formats

As you can see in the above contents, Camtasia’s inbuilt video converter is limited for it only supports TREC to MP4 conversion. If you want to convert TREC to AVI or any other formats, another third-party software is needed.

IOTransfer doesn’t only provide 20 + formats including MP4, AVI, and MP3 for video conversion, but also it's a kind of iPhone transfer software which allows you to directly transfer the converted video into any iDevices with only 1 click.

Besides video conversion, IOTransfer also helps to transfer iOS data between PC and iDevices. Meanwhile, the features of video download and GIF making are available.
