Appreciate it.

I'd be interested in recording tips as well, mostly because FRAPS eats ridiculously large amounts of disk space and breaks across a million files when I try to record with it, and stitching/encoding is a huge pain.
I am using Fraps and having to paste all those files together. I have a large drive (1TB) so I can record without having to worry about disk space. Although a 15 min video will take up like 100GB... The quality is amazing though.

I use TMPGEnc to convert video files into a more manageable size and to cut out the useless beginning/ends of a match.

I convert the files to MPEG2 HL profile, 4000-5000 Bitrate, 1280x720 resolution at 1:1 pixel ratio. I could go higher bitrate for better quality, but a 10 minute video is already 300Megs at that size, and it takes a while to upload to youtube.

I just think he's using SNB wrong.
