Why does Fraps make my video 480p when resolution is 720p?

#1
I got Fraps recently to make some YouTube videos but then when I finished recording a video I checked the resolution of the video and it was 480p. My screen resolution is 1366 x 768 and isn't that 720p? Why does fraps make my video from 720p to 480p? Am I checking my laptop's screen resolution wrong?

Fraps uses the resolution of the game to record, not your monitor's resolution (unless you use the "Monitor aero desktop" option, which I don't recommend anyway). It would only record at 480p if the game was 480p resolution.
