How to record trailer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to add a trailer to my store listing showing the app in action.  What (free) software is best to record the app?  I've tried the Windows 10 Game bar but unfortunately the store complained it was in an invalid format although it played fine.

    Thanks for the help,

    Much appreciated.

  • Hello,

    According to the Trailers document, the video format must be MOV or MP4.

    You need to follow these requirements:

    The video format must be MOV or MP4.
    The video duration must be less than 30 minutes.
    The file size of the trailer can’t exceed 10 GB.
    The thumbnail must be a PNG file with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
    The title can’t exceed 255 characters.

    Regarding the software recommendation, this question is not within the scope of our forum. You may post a question at answers forum.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Mattew Wu
