    Q&A: Tips from our Support Forum
    1. My Screen Recorder Pro: Reducing recording file size
      Q. Although, the file size produced by My Screen Recorder is reasonably small, I would like to reduce the file size even further. Is this possible?
      A. The size of the recorded video file produced by My Screen Recorder depends on the video and audio compressor used to record the video. My Screen Recorder uses "Microsoft Video 1" video compressor and "MPEG Layer 3" audio compressor by default. These compressors are more or less always present on every computer.

    You can however use better video and audio compressors to get lower recording file sizes.
    To use a different compressor:
    1. On the Tools menu, click on Settings.
    2. Select the AVI VIDEO Tab, and choose the compressor from the drop down list.

    NOTE: The recorded file may not playback if the video or audio compressor you use while recording the file is not installed on the computer you intend to play the file.

    Featured Article : Applying Picture-in-Picture Transition
    Transitions like the popular Picture-in-Picture can be great tools for making your videos unique.
    The Picture-in-Picture transition allows you to place a video clip over another video, with both the clips playing together. One of the clips is usually displayed in a smaller window, so the viewer can see which clip forms the main theme.
    Traditionally, the Picture-in-Picture transition was used by big budget studios and sports broadcasters to show action from two different angles simultaneously. However, with the digital video revolution truly redefining things, you can now apply this transition to your videos using Video Edit Magic.
