I looked around but couldn't find a guide for downsizing a xvid file. I have some avi files which are approx. 750mb's in length. Under file info in virtualdub, it says 960x544 , 23.976, audio channels, 5.1. I believe the original source for these xvid's was HD. I would like to convert these avi's to files that are approx. 350mb in length , 740x400, 23.976, 2 channel stero. Is there a guide on here or instructions on how to acomplish this? Thanks for any help

yeah mats, the video's are about 43 min. each. I did try that program as a matter of fact but I had an install error. It still installed but when I tried to use it something was wrong. I don't think I had the right settings selected. Is there a guide just for this program that shows what settings to use? Thanks!
bogart219 - You should expect to see some macroblocks with the bit rate you will have to use to get a file that small. Quality will suffer. You really should use a lower resolution if you are going to shrink the files to the size you propose as the lower resolution will give you better quality output. If you don't care anything about video quality (some don't) and can live with macroblocks, then you can do what you propose.
If AutoGK is too hard for you, Dr. Divx is free and very easy to use, but the catch is that you MUST purchase the non-free Divx codec from
to use with Dr. Divx. Dr. Divx won't work with Xvid or anything except the commercial Divx codec.
Thanks for the replies fellows, I will do some more reading .
