I need to know the format of video produced by my Nokia Lumia 925 Lumia with WP 8.1.

I know what is supported from the specifications, but what is the format when I record a video?

  • It should be noted that a lot of that information (like framerate, bitrate and resolution) will depend on settings in the camera app and isn't constant. – Indrek Mar 10 '15 at 13:10
