Hi. Are you trying to screen-record in MP4 format? OBS is a good choice for you. The default exporting file format is MKV or FLV; you can change it to MP4 with a few clicks. Let me help you make an OBS record in MP4 with a step-by-step guide. 

Step 1. Open OBS on your computer. Go to "Settings" on OBS. Click "Output" on the left sidebar.

Step 2. There is a window for "Recording". Find "Recording format" and choose "MP4" in the drop-down menu. Then it's all set. Now, you can record screens with MP4 output format.

OBS is a great screen recorder, indeed. However, it has limited exporting file formats.
