For the D400 series, do you think that this tutorial is outdated/depreciated? Archived - How to Record and Playback Streaming Sequences in Intel® RealSense™ SDK | Intel® Software
The code for save-to-disk in the examples for the sdk is quite different to the code in the tutorial above. Although the guide above is exactly what I need. It even contains compression techniques too.
Unfortunately that tutorial will not work with the 400 Series cameras, as the SDKs it would be compatible with (such as '2016 R2' and '2016 R3') are totally different in architecture to the current 'SDK 2.0'.

Reading through the tutorial, the compression feature was only usable on PCs with Intel Iris graphics tech, and you needed an Iris-equipped machine to play compressed files back.
The subject of RGB-D stream compression in a more general sense was discussed last year in this post:
