How to reduce file size of a video

  PC_HelpMe 10:09 08 Sep 2010


I have just edited one of my recordings, having chopped some bits from it. However, the edited version says it is about 4gb in size!!!!! It is only a half hour clip as it is (I put it in avi format) but the size of this file is larger than other recordings I have which last an hour and they are avi too!!!!

How can I make the file size smaller without it affecting the quality of the actual recording - is there software that I would have already on my computer that would let me do this (on Vista)?

Thank you.

Thanks Woodchip.

Are Mpeg files playable in dvd players? (Sorry for probably daft question).

Yes most DVD players will play Mpeg
