I am a youtuber and i have currently been recording with fraps, I have a 1tb WD caviar blue.
Fraps is making huge files! 108GB in 1h 30m! whilst recording minecraft

Is there anyway to change the format or to decrease the file size?

Thanks
Bud

From FRAPS faq page:

"Why is the AVI movie generated by Fraps so big? How can I reduce the size?
The filesize is big because there isnt enough time to encode the movie while the game is running. The movie frames are slightly compressed, but still require a large amount of disk space due to the high resolutions. After you have finished capturing you can convert the clips into a compressed format using a video editing program. Probably the easiest one to use is Windows Movie Maker which is included free as part of Windows Live Essentials. It allows you to easily edit your clips and add text and other effects to your film. The end result will also be compressed into the Windows Media Video (WMV) format which can be played back in most media players."
