Using VirtualDub is quite easy. To create a compressed version of the AVI follow these steps:
  • Start VirtualDub
  • Select File->Open and choose the AVI in the Fraps directory you wish to compress.
  • Select Video->Compression and choose the codec you wish to compress with (usually divx)
  • Select File->Save As AVI and specify a filename for the new AVI.
From the FRAPS FAQ,

FRAPS show fps, record video game movies, screen capture software

I've tried that already, and it won't work for me.

This guide is a bit dated,

AVI 2 DivX

but you need the Divx codec installed. I would go with this one,

Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs

then you should be good to go.

I have those codecs installed, and I just updated Sharks.
They are not showing in Virtualdub's list.
