    I have a 1920x1200 res desktop and I would like to record my desktop for long periods of time. Even 2 minute clips are 500mb though.

    Is there any way to compress it? I've lowered the quality but the size is still too large.

    that resolution is huge, scaling it lower is your best choice - you could also use one of the apps that follow your mouse to make a smaller res more useful.

    you might need to free up your hd, record it large, and then resize+recompress it with a different codec.
