Well if you had a huge hard drive, then I suggest you to select uncompressed lossless avi format. I prefer using Intel Indeo codec. Most of the internet user prefer DivX codec for space consideration.

Question

Thanks you guys.

Most of my capture has been from videotape and my capture size is 352x480. Should i use the same for the direct sat-tv capture?

Whatever looks the best to you, really. Like alcskid said though I would use a lossless codec like Indeo or HuffYUV
