    Codec

      I should have made it clearer that the file format must be .avi. This is because it will be playing from within a "DemoShield" program. I would like to find a more modern (.avi output) codec than the RLE, yet sill one that is pre-installed on most XP and Vista machines. The only problem with the RLE (as well as the old Cinipack and Indiego) codecs is that it makes huge files compared to almost any modern codec. At the same resolution and bit rate my Microsoft RLE encoded .avi is about 40x lager than if I encode it via .wmv or flv. I would certainly use those formats, but for this project it is not an option - must be .avi.
