For you and for people watching your stuff, using those hacked Fraunhofer codecs is the easiest thing to do. Blame it on people not being smart enough to use ffdshow :(

Ok, that's your hard drive. Use huffyuv, a lossless codec that doesn't take up nearly as much hard drive space. Might need to tweak it a little bit.
Also, defrag the fuck out of your PC before you capture video
