Change frame rate to around 3fps, usually plenty for charts. I use Camtasia and can also output in mp4, and set overall compression to 50% which still produces a very good quality file but half the size. Not sure if you have similar option with Hypercam.

Mike

Big Big Thank You for the tips Mike!! I am going to change Record and Playback to 3 fps and compare the video size and quality with the default 10 one. If it does not work, I will try to change the Frame compression quality to 50% (from default 85%).

When I uploaded the first video, I hung around my computer like a hawk as the first 3 attempts failed (one of them got to 85% after 2 hours). Then tried my luck on the second one as it's extremely stressful to be a "hawk" ..

Beth (grateful for making my life easier .. haha ..)

Beth, great job on your video! You can embed them here in your journal if you wish, just take the full YouTube URL (normal URL) and wrap it around the yt tags like so:

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

The first valid signal came along after 11:15 am. I was too late to recognize an up divergence and missed it LOL! Minutes later a second one came along. I thought too much on this one and it went up without me .. sigh ..

Well, what can I say?!! Good news: As we got close to 11:00 am, I was thinking if I should just jump into a trade even it might not meet the entry requirements on my checklist. Glad that I made a sensible decision and stayed with my plan even I did not shoot when it's time to place a trade.

Thanks Mike for your kind suggestion and viewing of course. I recorded the videos to refresh my learning experiences + reminding myself how "stupid" I could be .. sigh ..

I just recorded one on "When NOT to Trade". Great news: I changed fps to 3 and the file is at least 3 times smaller! It's uploaded in 20 minutes else should be 1.5 hours. Thank You .. Thank You for answering my sos last night .. haha ..

Oh, one quick question please. Search used to be on the Tool Bar (next to New Posts I think). It's not there anymore?! Thank you.

Thanks Mike for the change advice. Sad to learn that some found the other Search button redundant. To me, it's more user-friendly. I will train myself to use the remaining one LOL!
