Now this camera is Brilliant but for a newbie to it I was lost !
Here is what I found:-
To get a well behaved recording I did this:-
raspivid -o video1.h264 -t 10000 -hf -fps 30
and a well behaved 10 second video clip was gained in the /home/pi/ directory
But MP4 is a more conventional recording format.
On Windows MP4Box is used aok to do the conversion ! But on Linux this is needed first:-
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y gpac
then this does the conversion
MP4Box -fps 30 -add video1.h264 video1.mp4
And lo it appears next to the clip !
For newbies 'ls' will list all the files in the directory.
