CamStudio is a well-known free screen capture software. I used it, but didn't like it. Movavi suite has screen capture and video editing features, but it's not free. To get best results, you should use quality screen capture codec, not resize your source videos, use good video converter or editing software. Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional video editor ...

In order to get a near the high quality you require, you would have to use quite a high bit rate. Unfortunately the number of pixels that the video decodes to and the actual effective resolution of a video are not the same thing.

MP4 files should be all you need. There shouldn't be any encryption on the files. It is possible you may need to download a codec.

A tool to do that would be FFmpeg but unfortunately it does not support PDF decoding. Though you can convert your pdf's to png's using imagemagick (relevant question on askUbuntu). And then create a movie out of those PNG's with ffmpeg. This guide on the ffmpeg page explains how, here an example command: ffmpeg -r 1/5 -i img%03d.png -c:v libx264 -r 30 ...

Somewhat of an duplicate of: Can I manually change an .mp4 to .m4v by changing the extension in the Finder (mac) or explorer (win)? MP4 and M4V are essentially exact same thing, M4V is usually used for video only files but some sofware is using it for standard MP4 files with video AND audio aswell. It's just a convention to signal the type of content. An ...
