that's a pity than, because the captured movie looks like... a low bitrate movie. the
screen "floats" and there are smears behind moving objects. i'm sure it might be
improved with a higher bitrate.

somebody told me to play with vqscale. the lower it is, the higher quality and
filesize (bitrate). i tried this and...

vqscale=1 makes a very high bitrate (1500) and filesize bigger than 800 MB
vqscale=2 makes what i just have received: bitrate 300, filesize 400 MB.

it looks like there's nothing in between.

and of course the quality of vqscale=1 IS better.
