My customer gave me a series of videos, recorded from CC Cam. The extension is .dad. I couldn't play them on any player. (Obviously changed the extension for testing) and I wasn't able to convert them into a more common video format. I've tried Miro, HandBrake, VLC and some other apps on Mac to convert them with no success. Can anyone help me how can I convert them into a more common format that can be played and used in production. I can give more info about the video format if anyone asks and tells me how to get that info :)

What does Mediainfo say for the OBS captured file? Use View -> Text mode and paste the readout into your Q. – Mulvya Jan 19 at 8:23

Use this ffmpeg* command:

ffmpeg -i "" -c:v copy "20151105-175532.mp4"

*get 32-bit static build.

Great! Worked like a charm. I had to use 64Bit Mac version of ffmpeg binaries. But I worked. – Hadu Jan 19 at 9:18
