Follow the steps to change display resolution during recording.
Go to settings>> preferences>>Check "change display resolution during recording".
Let me know if you are facing any issues.
Hi, thanks. Yes, I have already tried that. When I check that box, my resolution will automatically be changed to 1280 X 720 when I start recording. This resolution does not work very good for my monitor. Everything gets stretched and distorted which makes it a little difficult. I would like to be able to record in 1024 X 768 and also publish at that resolution. If I leave that box unchecked I am able to record in 1024 X 768 but when I go to publish, it publishes in 1280 X 720, which leaves a big black border within the MP4 (see image). I want to be able to fill in that blank space with the video. I have tried to record using a few other resolutions that work for my monitor but they all look the same when published.
Just to clarify, the black border is only added to the left/right of the video. The black border on the top/bottom has been added by Windows Media Player. Adding black borders is a common technique called video letterboxing, to account for differences in resolutions (more specifically, aspect ratios). Video Express has been designed to record and publish in the 16:9 aspect ratio, which is the standard for HD video. Unfortunately this means that resolutions that are not 16:9, such as 1024x768, will be letterboxed.
We will consider this problem in our next update.
