How to Compress Fraps Video Files

I often use fraps to record my game play videos, but the video size is rather big. Now I want to make them smaller and cut some clips out without making them blurry. Which program can I use?

Fraps is a great application which helps users to record or take screenshots of video games they’re playing. As you all might know, the recorded ingame files have pretty high quality, but at a cost- huge file sizes. Since keeping these big and heavy files in your computer could clog the hard drive and make downloading more difficult, you may need a program which can compress Fraps video to a manageable size.

To help you easily compress Fraps video files, Wondershare Video Converter is highly recommended. The “Small Size” function automatically compresses your video files without any quality loss. You can also manually adjust the encoder, resolution, bit rate, frame rate, etc. to get the result that you want. Interested? Just go through the steps blow.
