I assumed Hatari would default to PNG when it detected the PNG library on my system. That was not the case. When I set the option to PNG, the file size went down from 20GB to about 13GB. However, it was still much larger than M4V and the index was still seen as corrupt.

> You are correct that it was recorded in BMP format with zooming. My screen is set to 832x576. How do I remove zooming? Do I simply set the resolution to 320x200 instead of 832x576? Normally, I have the screen zoomed because 320x200 is far too small when my Mac’s resolution is 1920x1080.

Set your Hatari resolution to the Apple(tm) approved resolution of 416X312.
