Well, the thing is we/you :P are talking a lot of different matters at the time.

 

Which free screen capture softw did you use? I used to use a good one, a friend told me was the best (the one to capture games) but I don't remember which it was... I could ask... but if you tell me it would be better.

 

About this coding... well, I haven't done any screen capture my self in .NET (but I did in c++, via directx it worked fine) but I could check...

Apart of that, the reproduction thing... it's not that much about how you encode it, but which driver/codec/player/plugin/whatever the end-user uses to watch the video. Usually youtube has many versions of the same file, in HD, flv, 3gp, etc (you'll see that if you use a downloader in your browser :P)

If your avi is like too big, it probably is compressing to basic/old mpg raw format, to make a shorter, compress as avi and check the video parameters, as width, height, frame-rate, color palette, etc.

Well, if you were looking for a legendary answer, here I am. :P

 

I've just remember, what you NEED to use is the windows media encoder, download it and you could do both: use the program to capture, and use the API to capture. So, forget anything else, this one works

Bad news, I went to my Windows media encoder sources and found out it works up to XP, W7 don't support it anymore.

 

Godd news, I've just found that software I talked you about, it's the CamStudio, it's open source, it works (used in digital magazines for java-games video recording) and it's free.

And, in case you want a free trial of a more user friendly software there's Camtasia. Also used for games screen video recording.
