RTJPEG will start writing RAW video if you don't have enough cpu power. This
detection is not perfect either. Use MPEG4, if you turn down the bitrate
enough you should have enough cpu.

and about 2.27G for 1-hour program.

about 7-8G for 1/2 show.

bit odd... At present I use RTJPEG since it provides better quality on my
limited CPU-power system.
