DIVX AVI File slighlty too large to burn on 700 cd. What is the best way to make it smaller?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I downloaded a DIVX Avi movie file that is 720 megs. I would rather burn it to a 700 meg CD than keep it on my hard drive. How can I recompress the file so that it fits on the disk? Which video format to switch to (IF ANY, Or should I keep AVI)? What is the best way to accomplish this? Best software, steps, etc... (My Burner does not have overburn capabilities) Thank you for nay help.

That's pretty easy. Just use VirtualDub to re-encode this DivX into a new DivX that has a slightly lower bit rate. The new one will be a little smaller and will fit on one CD.

My choice has been to slightly lower the quality (or increase the compression efficiency) of the audio. Just try re-encoding the audio to get a smaller file size. I use Virutaldub to split the files. Lame to encode to MP3, the nandub to merge the streams. (Nandub handles VBR MP3)...

I used AVIsplitter to - yes u guessed - split the avi in 2 chunks, and burn those on two cd's. No quality loss. Oh - and there are cracks available for avisplitter 1.0, just search a bit.

Hi, I have used VirDub on quite a few occassions and have split successfully but some of the files downloaded have a CBR conflict and VirDub will split these but you have no sound or the sound and video does not match up. Have used TMPGEnc to over come some of these problems but it likes to save as a mpeg which makes the file incredibly huge. VirDub suggests to decompress the audio and then recompress it at a different CBR. This l havent mastered as yet. Does anyone have some easy explaining details on how to do this? Is there another program l mght be able to try? I like to split the avi's in to 2 so that l can convert them as VCD's or SVCD's so that l can play them on my DVD player. Also, some people, when they create these movies in a DivX format or rip them from DVD's are not a non standard audio compression, which makes it very difficult indeed to try and split. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
