I need to create video upto max 50 MB. The already created videos are anywhere between 70-80MB. How do I compress videos without affecting the quality?

It really depends on content. You can lower the quality doing a custom production in Camtasia to say 50%.

If your content is nothing more than a screen recording. You didn't use zoom in and zoom out animations. It's a Microsoft WORD tutorial, or perhaps a Excel Tutorial.Things of this nature. Lowering the quality shouldn't hurt the overall quality.

Recording with highly detailed images and videos. Content with a lot of colors. You'll find increasing the quality may be warranted instead. That's just the way it is.

I don't know what video dimensions your working with? If it's 1920 x 1080. You might want to think about switching to 1280 x 720. It will reduce file size dramatically and should leave you plenty of head room to produce at normal to higher quality output levels.

Looking at your screen capture made me chuckle, remembering what our video engineers always used to say that NTSC stood for: "Never The Same Color."
