I need BEST PRACTICES Advice re: Recorded webinars

Hello, I am often in receipt of recorded Webex mp4s from SMEs across our business, recordings I am tasked with adding into our LMS as Storyline courses.
I need to know: 
1.  the best way to convert them in VLC media player in order to assure they will not be compressed by Storyline. 

2.  ideally this way creates a smaller file than what I'm doing now (choosing H265 & mp3); one hour recordings are huge when they are still clear enough to be useful.

 

I have also included screen shots of the other fields or settings I can adjust. 

Be kind, please ;) I'm primarily a classroom facilitator tasked with trying to build LMS courses in Storyline.

Hello! 

You can put the MP4's directly into Storyline without converting them.  Are they too big of files do you think?

In Storyline 360 you can insert a video onto a slide (INSERT >> VIDEO >> From File).  Then in the video options tab, select the drop down next to Compression and select "None"

If you need a converter, a great video converter that I use is AVS - you can get a lifetime license to all the tools (including the converter) for $60.

Webex recordings are among those that Storyline is going to compress, period. I can't tell it not to compress them. So I know I need to convert them from webex's mp4 "version" to some other mp4 version,  through conversion  in VLC or Handbrake. And I need the result to not be a huge file. At least not bigger than it already is! Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
