Newbie needs help. Screen size and file size. Legal Video w/ Date and Time


New Member

I am new to OBS. I've done some tests and have a few questions.

1) I was able to figure out how to put the date and time on top of the video I recorded, which I need to do for video work. I did a test recording from Zoom (See image How come the test recording isn't full screen? It appeared correctly while I was recording it.

2) The test file I recorded is very large in size. It is an .mkv file and for a 10 minute recording it was 200 megabytes. Legal video often goes for hours. I want the file size to be much smaller. I don't need the best quality.

Thanks for your help.
