Sorry to bother you, but this seems to be the only thread I can find about Fraps screen capture program. I have a question about it to ask you guys. Recently I recorded a gameplay video with Fraps and later I found the output size was too big, (the video length is just 10 minutes but the output is near 2G).So I downloaded this software as you can see ( to help me compress Fraps videos. But after the compression process, the original AVI file got converted into MP4 and I found there was some kind of quality loss and the frame rate also dropped a little. I want to know if you guys know any better parameter settings which can make the compressed video look better.
