You can select the Intel(R) H.264 ( AVC ) compressor or the Xvid Encoder. Intel(R) H.264 creates smaller files but requires more computer resources.

You can choose to keep the default profile dimensions or change it from the Video Dimensions drop-down menu. Custom dimension settings are available.
The audio compressor Advanced Audio Codec ( *.AAC ) produces high quality and small sized audio files.
The audio frequency is set to 44100 Hz and the Bitrate is 128 Kbps. The Stereo audio channel creates an impression of sound heard from various directions.
