How to Export FlashBack FBR Recording To MP4 & MKV

What is FlashBack Express?

Flashback is a free screen record which promises high quality video for demos and tutorials. It allows to capture anything on your PC screen and even upload the exported video file to YouTube. From our experience, it’s very easy to use. All you have to do is open the software, mark the area you would like to record and click the recording button. Once the recording will be completed, you can export the file to either AVI or SWF video files.

FlashBack Supported Formats

FlashBack Express provides the ability to export to AVI or SWF video formats. For further formats, they offer their paid plan, which allows to export to WMV and QuickTime. We do not recommend to export to these video formats though, as the quality vs compression ratio isn’t very well, so you’ll either get a small file with low quality, or a large video file with good quality.

How to export or convert FlashBack FBR to MP4 / MKV?

Most flashback users run into one of the following cases:

  1. You saved an FBR file and can’t seem to get an MP4 file out of it, to upload to YouTube of watch on your favorite device.
    *** A file with the FBR file extension is a FlashBack Screen Recording file, sometimes called a FlashBack Movie file, used to store video recordings of a computer screen.
  2. You exported a flashback recording to either AVI or SWF files and now want to somehow export / convert those to an MP4 / MKV file.
