if you use lossless codec, you will get big files, no way around that.

For smaller files, a lossy codec like x264vfw or matrox will work, but your image quality will go down depending on your encode settings.

For me, the Lagarith Codec proved quite efficient. The quality is quite good compared to the "relatively small" files. For a two hour recording, it took about 160GB, which is okay to me.
