Encoding Video

“It is often necessary to create a video that demonstrates your game or a specific feature. Unfortunately captured videos tend to be large. Fortunately, gigabytes of raw video usually compress down to tens of megabytes.

One easy way to compress is with the free edition of Microsoft Expression Encoder.”


  • Click Download Free Version from the right side of the page below
  • Run the installer
  • Run Expression Encoder.
  • Drag and Drop your captured video into the encoder.
  • Select the output directory under Output -> Job Output
  • Select quality under Encode -> Video. 2048 kbps is a nice even number.
  • Make sure that Frame Rate and Size Mode are both set to Source.
