That way all the information will be kept and your video will look perfect when you transcode it (as long you do it correctly) . If you don't have enough storage for that matter then buy some. HDDs are cheap these days.
Although I've already said this I'll say it again - I don't support this guide anymore. The quality is pretty bad and there's better ways to do it nowadays.

Regardless, this video was specifically aimed at recording for long amounts of time with small file size WITHOUT buying HDD space. A lot of people on CnR are kids and don't have access to any amount of money (No matter how cheap HDDs are) so I made this guide.
This was never meant to be a guide for recording videos for every scenario. It was specifically aimed at small file sizes for longer recording.
