I am a teacher trying to make a series of short videos to post on a learning website for my students. I am using a simple webcam device plugged into my PC.
I have a problem though, even at a fairly low resolution of 720 by 480 pixels the filze size for a 3 minute clip is over 500mb. THis is way to high. I have downloaded videos with much higher res and that are much longer for a much smaller size.
I am recording in .avi which might have something to do with it? Howevber I don't have the option of recording using anything else with the program I have.
Thanks for any help!
