various recording codecs observations
by and large most of the ffdshow formats I can concoct seem to work. dvx works on its own but xvid mp4 doesn't work on its own but does seem to work from within ffdshow. Fastest frame rate seems to be from ffdshow winmedia 9 adv, this seems to have the best look at highest quality settings too but file size is about 2x that of regular dvx. ffdshow h264 doesn't seem to work = totally distorted.
All the codecs seem to show an edge effect (white highlight to text) except for microsoft vid1 which has the least distortion but very slow framerate and 10x larger files than all the others.
frame size problem (vid looks skewed) seems to only show up with the camstudio codec.
