I tend to take quite a lot of video screencasts to illustrate bugs and features to 3rd parties during web development projects.
To achieve this is I use Quicktime on my Mac and then go to "File > New screen recording", record the video and press "Stop". Then it asks me to save the video which I do, but it always comes out as a very large file, for instance a 30 second video depending on how much I scroll on the screen can be 50mb (not the best for sharing).
At the moment to get around this before I share the videos on email or in Trello (project management tool) I setup a queue in Handbrake and run all the videos through there in the 'normal setting'. This reduces them to about 7mb each with as near which makes no noticable difference.
The only issue is that as a workflow this is a bit of pain. Is there a way I can save lower size videos direct from Quicktime? I've researched saving at 720p which does very little for the file size and 480p which gives me an iphone sized video which is too small to use.
