Windows 7: Microsoft Expression Enocoder 4 Screen Capture

Microsoft Expression Enocoder 4 Screen Capture

So after testing a few useless screen capture softwares I downloaded microsoft expression encoder 4 screen capture. The problem is that it puts out massive screen capture video files. On a 15-20 sec screen capture it produces a 17.4MB file. And here is the confusing part when I choose a lower birate but same frame rate the video is choppy and unwatchable but I have to select 30000kbps opposed to like 500kbps for it to produce a smooth video. Does tweaking the frame rate/quality rate and also bitrate produce smaller file sizes or am do I have to find another screen capture software that captures a decent video quality with audio and average file size?

So you want to capture video?
When you looked for software did you search for Screen Capture software or Video Capture software?

Seems like an awful lot of money to spend on Expression just to capture videos.
