When I record a video that is over 25 minutes, CamStudio always gives me an error message telling me it can't copy or delete the sound file when I stop recording, the video is not saved.

    I found that using the default audio format of PCM causes this due to the audio file being > 2 GB.

    Try setting the audio format to Microsoft ADPCM ~ much better compression.

     
  • It's not compressed, it's just less data that is saved.

    But this won't repair the bug. Here's a fix suggestion: Record data in a new file when the size is too big. This is how Fraps records big files.
