Something's changed on me... Now when I use QuickTime to record (using "New Screen Recording"), it records the portion of the screen I've selected same as always but the resulting file is way fat.

Get Info says its recorded as: codec Photo-JPEG.

It used to record in H.264 but now it's a bloated file and this screwy wrong format.

Why?

How do I change it back to record screen as a H.264 file?

I see only options for Quality: Medium or High. (I choose Medium.)

I'm using latest Lion and QT.

Any ideas...? Thanks

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
