Hi. I recently decided to use Hypercam 2 and while by itself the video quality isn't too good. I heard that using xvid video compression would increase the quality to that of fraps. So I downloaded the codec and installed it, yet I have no idea where to go from here. It didn't automatically show up in the video compression list.
I would appreciate any answers/solutions you all can give. Thank you!
If you start with a bad file, you can't make a better one out of it. Check options for the program and see if there is a higher quality setting you can use to record.
The quality of compression will affect things if you start out with a perfect one. Lets say you take a DVD file, you can compress it and get a bad result, or compress it using a different method and get a better quality one, close to the DVD quality, but you can't make the file better than the original DVD.
