Output avi files are extremely large

I use mp4 too - it's easier to edit, as well as resulting in smaller files. 1GB/min seems outlandish though :o Are you screen-capturing HD? Full screen? Check your quality settings.


A 30-minute recording of a non-HD screen gives me files of 160-250,000KB, depending what's going on and whether it's night (monochrome, obviously) or day.

Mp4 is MUCH BETTER. But, be careful. Some video editors have 2 mp4 output flavors: h.264 AVC mp4, and h.265 HEVC mp4. YouTube does NOT ACCEPT h.265 HEVC mp4. The mp4 output from NCH Prism Video File Converter IS h.264.
