Which will probably mean that you don't want to drop the resolution
down, at all.  But, can you drop the frame rate?  Unless the screen cast
includes live action video, you can probably reduce the frame rate quite
a lot.

And what do you want to play the file with?  If it's for others to play,
you want to use an encoding scheme that they can play back.

There's all manner of schemes available to you, MPEG (encumbered, but
widely playable), Ogg Theora (unencumbered, but probably not easily
viewable if you don't use Linux), and many others.
