LARGE AVI to smal AVI files

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Hugh Sutherland, Oct 16, 2003.

  1. I recently D/L'ed 2 of the same AVI movies (StarTrek Enterprise episodes).
    One was 200MB and the other only 85MB. I watched them both and the quality
    was pretty much the same. What program do I need to convert/compress the
    large MB file to a smaller MB file? Do I need MPEG4 software or hardware?
    I recently got a MSI [email protected] MPEG4 tv tuner card. It came with
    Does anyone know how I can use this software to do this? Any help will do?

    Recompress the AVI (it's *already* compressed with a specific
    codec) with a lower bitrate using Virtual Dub. Keep in mind
    that it may look worse, and it takes a lot of trial and
    error to do this effectively.

    Best sites for information on this are and

    Possibly one was an actual avi and the other a DivX or Xvid version.
