I've searched the guides but haven't found anything that particularly deals with my request.
When I shoot film with my digital camera I got avi files that are sort of uncompressed. Each minute takes about 100MB.
I wonder what's the best way just to shrink them in size with the least quality loss?
I've tried Avidemux which is competent enough but maybe a bit to complex for my simple task.
Or maybe Avidemux is the one to use, but what's the best procedure in that case?
Also, is there any golden rule what size/minute a video should be in to be suitable for web before it starts crackin up completely?
thanks in advance!

Can you provide more information such as the type of camera and, if you know it, the type of video that it exports?John Miller
Thanks for your replies.
I'd rather not use wmf-format though since I want it to work on all platforms.
The camera is a Canon Ixus 950.
This is what Avidemux sais about the movie.
Codec 4CC: MJPG
Image Size: 640 x 480
Frame Rate: 30 fps
Bitrate: 88200 Bps / 705 kbps
Variable Bitrate: No
Frequency: 44100 Hz
How do I change the frame rate? I tried that in Avidemux but then it simply played the movie slower which got the audio out of sync. I guess I need to process the frame rate change somehow?

For embedding in multi-platform applications the choices are many depending on context.Recommends: Kiva.org - Loans that change lives.
