I was thinking of posting a vid of my OFC win (337 hands) prior to the upcoming tournament on Ultimatebet, so y'all can see how it's done.
It all depends on how you recorded the video. The settings for the audio & video rates matter, as does the screen size.
For reference, I use the lowest possible audio & video settings AND I shrink my capture area as small as possible while still keeping everything clear enough to decipher. When I do all that, I get about 1.5-2 MB per minute for an AVI file. In comparison, one of Dbitel's videos was 163 MB and only 35 mins long. That's about 4.6 MB per minute, most likely due to his using higher quality settings and/or the fact that he had to record the whole screen area while 4-tabling. It's definitely worth playing around with your settings to get just the right quality versus size ratio. (or I can look up my settings & share them)
As far as hands, you know it depends on the action, etc. But I'd say the average for online poker in general is 1 hand per minute or 60 per hour.
