If you’re using a Mac, it’s best to use MP4 because it will also work on your iPhone or iPod. However, if you have a PC and unless you plan on watching your videos only in iTunes, it’s best to download the video as a MOV file. Click continue after you’re done.


4. Choose Your Video Size and Resolution
