Yeah, stop winning things jAkUp... this is getting boring.
On a side note, why did you use wmv compression ? divx or xvid for example give far better results in general... Downloading your hires vids right now anyway...
Oh, and congrats (again...). :)

Heh, well I really dont know much about video compression... so I just used Fraps to capture the video, and windows media encoder to compress it.... Can I use DIVX also?

Use Virtualdub, it's a very good program for editing/encoding videos into any AVI formats (like Divx).

Not via windows media encoder I guess. But as long as you have the divx codec installed, you can use some tool like VirtualDub (http://www.virtualdub.org) to encode your video in divx (or any other codec you have).

Edit : your videos were cool by the way. Oh, vdub can compress audio too (it can do a lot of things, actually).
