Can anybody tell me if it is possible to compress mpg Video Files so I can archive my films and documentary's. If so what programs will handle this job. So far I have only compressed a file of 2.0gb by a total of 0.07gb giving a compressed file of 2.2gb. Not enough to save space. I have a 500gb drive on my XP Pro which is filling up fast. If it can't be done then I may have to delete these files and forget about keeping them.
Hi Fingees. Some files will not fit on a CD because of the size of the files. Some DVD's are only big enough for one or two films at full size. That is why I want to compress them smaller. Maybe archiving them is not such a good idea.
Does anyone else have any suggestions on this subject.
InTheCity: I have downloaded and installed this program and it seems to convert to AVI format which is not a compressed format whereas mpeg is a compressed file. So therefore this does not do what I want. I have come to the conclusion that I can not reduce the mpeg files any smaller than they are now. So I will have to delete the files from my system.
I do have the films on DVD's but I just wanted to keep the originals in case any of my DVD's should become damaged.
