Nero Recode 2 is one of several products previously offered in the now discontinued Nero 8 digital software program package. Nero Recode 2 supports video and DVD conversions to MP4---Nero's default digital format. It also provides users the option to set the size and quality of your converted MP4, as well as allowing you to edit or cut sections of video. You may also add chapters, subtitles and audio tracks to your output, if needed. Please note that some quality may be lost if converting from high-resolution source footage, due to Nero Recode's compression standards.

    Click the "Lock Ratio" button to save your input video's dimensions. If you need to resize your video, press the "Video" button on the right side of the screen and hit the "Resize" tab. Manually enter the desired height and width for your video and click "OK."
