The default one (raw/pcm/wav) kinda generates big files, can it be replaced like video codecs are?
I can only speculate why, but considering the pretty much dead VFW audio codec development scene, and other than coding the interface for ffmpeg and bundling a multi dozen megabyte ffmpeg avcodec library, PCM seems like the most universal and obvious choice. Plus, perhaps ffmpeg and its libs being GPL can be an issue? Not sure.
In anycase, transcoding only the audio stream in a video file is such a straighforward operation these days. On Windows, the CLI ffmpeg executable can take care of it really fast using pretty much minimal computer resources and time.
While writing this, I just did a transcode from AAC @ 320Kb to Opus @ 160Kb in a 30min 1280x720 60FPS video and it went at 1510fps or 25.2x faster than the video duration.
edit: various grammar and sintax fixes
Well, man can wish I guess. Kinda the only thing stopping me for using it as dedicated recorder, since it's a really nice OSD and OC program...
