Troubleshooting Question

Where does VLC player store/save its recordings & convert video to a different aspect ratio

Last Modified: 2020-11-06
I played a video in a different Aspect Ratio (so as to 'widen' the video) & pressed
the red  'Record' button.  After that I press the same red button to stop recordin but
VLC never prompt me what's the filename I wish to save the recorded video as.

Does it save it as some default filename or where does it save it too?

Instead of re-recording the entire 2 hours of video to get a 'widened' video, is there
a quick way to convert the video to a different aspect ratio using VLC player (or
any other free tools)?
