How to compress a line graphic video

Upon compression, the bottom half of the screen looks blocky and jumbled... See here (uncompressed at right, compressed at left). I used H.264 encoding and 700 kbps, as instructed... But I also experimented with higher bit rates and quality, to no avail. [more inside]
