Having a difficult time wanting to Convert or Shrink Movies to a Small Size. I'll give you an example.
Men In Black 3 (2012).avi was downloaded and is 1.35 GB (1,459,574,564 bytes) (AVI)
Looking to downsize a bit and still keep quality. Would this be a Conversion or a Shrink of somehow?

Thread: Shrinking Files to Smaller Size
You reduce size by reducing bitrate (=reducing quality).
Or reduce file size by downsizing the frame size (=inferior playback on large screens).
In any case, you will have to re-encode the video (=quality loss, the degree of loss depending on how it's done).Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end. -- Henry David Thoreau
On another Note: I was discussing the answer to the question: "Looking to downsize a bit and still keep quality. Would this be a Conversion or a Shrink of somehow?"
This has been answered already.
Sorry to have upset so many people. That was clearly not my intention.
Please get back with Me if You can on answer to BACKUP. I really could use an answer.
Let's get off the Subj Warez as it is in the rules and I made a mistake to even mention it. You are quoting me on this reply to whether or not it is Legal or not to Backup my Originals. That is my Second question in the Thread. I see it all over this site explaining How to RIP, Burn and whatever. I just would like to learn that's all.
I' am very sorry to have upset You. That was not my Intention as I said before. I made a mistake and would like to contiue further in learning. If You are a Mod or Admin. Kick Me and You'll never hear me bother anyone again on this. I'll continue trying out some Softeare that is Infiltrated with Spyware and Adware, You name it. Just wanting to learn that's all. Let get along. I am publicly saying I'm Sorry for the Foolishness I brought on with the question. I Could have lied. (Should have) to save my Embarrassment.
If You accept my Apology, I will not make another mistake like that. (No Garentees I won't mess up in Future on anything)
To Mods or Admin:
I Jake Roberts, (Martinfin) Apologize for my ignorance of asking a question that may or may not have been about Warez.
Reason I say "May Not" is because I convert all my Movies to .AVI and back them up in case they get scratched to where I have to Buy the DVD again.
AutoGK is easy enough to use for DVD to XviD or DivX conversions. You can also use it to make that AVI smaller, if you like.
And just use more common sense next time and understand you can put the site owner in a difficult position by being careless.
