    I just got FRAPS screen recorder and each minute of in-game footage takes about about 1GB! What is up with that?! I understand that you can change the settings but then the quality gets really degraded. How can the size possible be this big? An entire HD movie/game can sit on an 8GB disk easily. Why is 1 minute of video take up 1GB? I tried numerous ways of compressing it but each resulted in color loss and or big time quality loss. Is there a good way to compress or get good quality without big file sizes?

    FRAPS is already trying it's best to compress the video as much as possible while also capturing the screen so you're lucky it's not any bigger(RAW video?).

    Directly from the FRAPS FAQ.
