The code defaults to finding the latest MP4 recording in the default recording folder (Documents\vMixStorage)
 
        Dim szExt As String = ".mp4"
        Dim szFolder As String = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments) & "\vmixstorage"
        Dim szLatestFile As String = ""
        Dim dLatestFile As Date = Nothing
        For Each szFile As String In System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(szFolder)
            Dim fi As New System.IO.FileInfo(szFile)
            If fi.Extension = szExt Then
                If fi.LastWriteTime > dLatestFile Then
                    szLatestFile = szFile
                    dLatestFile = fi.LastWriteTime
                End If
            End If
        Next
        If System.IO.File.Exists(szLatestFile) Then
            API.Function("AddInput", Value:="Video|" & szLatestFile)
        End If
