I recorded my desktop with quicktime (for a tutorial I am making) on an iMac and the output was a .mov file.

I edited and deleted scenes with openshot and know I don't now how to export it to a .mov file again.

I know the video format is supposed to be .mov but the codec I am not so sure about that h263, h262, libvpx?
