Unhappy How do I use LCL ( Loss-Less Codec ) with VirtualDub?

I am trying to compress an AVI file of 1 megabite using LCL ( Loss-Less Codec ) with VirtualDub for a test , but instead of getting a smaller file after the process is done I end up having a hugy file ( almost 400 Megabites ), I know I am doing something wrong but I can't figure out what.
This is what I am doing:
I open the AVI file in VirtualDub.
On video tab I select full processing mode and compression, I select the video compression codec ( AVIzlib Compressor ) and configure it to :
Video Format : RGB 24
Compress Mode : High Compression
On audio tab I select AVI audio and direct steam copy.
On file tab I selet : " save as AVI ".
After the compression is finished the saved file is hugy ( 400 Megabites) instead of having a file smaller than the original file of 1 Megabite.
Any help would be really apreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Who long was this clip ?, and what resolution does it use ?.

Anyway the LCL codec is not a high compression codec. I haven't tried it, but I would expect it to increase filesize 20-50 times, when reencoding a divx file.

Lossless codecs, like huffyuv and LCL are primarily used for TV capture, which can then be watched and deleted, or reencoded to divx or another high compression format.
Donate your idle CPU time for something usefull.
