Lossless Video Compression

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Is there any lossless video compression techniques available? Is it possible to Winzip a video file?

Search on Yahoo for a compression codec called Huffyuv

It is supposedly lossless and is based on zip compression

you can winzip/winrar a video file, but the reduction will be minimal due to the video already being in a compressed state (ie, mpeg-1).

I know you can gain about 20MB of space using winrar on a 650-700MB MPEG-1 video file
