work with Google Earth .kmz/.kml files
KMZ is, basically, an XML file that is used by Google Earth and Google Maps to compress KML files (files that contain geographical data such as the latitude, longitude or name of a specific location) and any additional files it might come with (images, other information, etc.) into a single archive. Turning this type of file into a video format can prove to be quite a difficult task, especially since there aren’t that many video converters to help you out (those that claim they can do the job will create a video file with a significant loss of data). A simple way you can create a video from your KMZ file is by using a video/screen recorder and turn it into MP4, one of the most popular and widely-supported video formats available. This way, you can easily share your KMZ Google Earth tours with other users without having to install specialized software to deal with this format.

Here’s a quick guide demonstrating the process of turning .kmz to MP4 video. The software we will use is Screen Recorder, a very popular and easy-to-use application that can successfully record .kmz/kml files as MP4 files.
