Fraps Video Size
When you have recorded a video, and want to share it online, then a common problem that occurs is the video size issue.
If the video size is too large, then the user won’t be able to share that on other websites. However, there is a trick through which the size of a video can be reduced if it is too bulky for sharing.
- First, the user can lower down the frames per second, like 30.
