Approx 4 mins video clip recorded on 640x480 30 fps is around 500 MB.
In the same time a full movie in AVI format is 750 MB. Any sudgestions how can I compress my video files in a reasonable size, pls name the programs which I can use for.

Thanks,
Ross

Go to the doom9 forum. There you will find ample information on how to compress your digicam videos to a reasonable size and such that they can be played back on a DVD player.

Hi

One FREE compressionutility is Windows Media Encoder 9, which converts to WMV files- there are lots of compression options to choose from. You need to play around to find that is best for you but I would start with the VBR ( Variable Bit Rate ) 2M option. This should produce quite a bit of compression without any noticable distortion.

You can get it from

Hi

Another piece of software you could use is "RAD Video Tools". You can recode your AVI files to AVI files with DivX, XviD compression to achieve very substantial compressions.
