MPEG Compression help.....please

Hi All,
Could anyone out there tell me where I can get hod of a utility that will compress MPEG's so that I can add them to websites at a reasonable size for example.

Just typed 'compress mpeg' into Google and got loads of hits.

Because they are already compressed. Only thing you can do it to Re-Encode them, i.e. reduce quality. You can encode them as MPEG4 or DivX files. MPEG4/DIVX files are much smaller than MPEG2, but quality loss is not much. MPEG1 is not good enough. You may find it is almost impossible to find any free program which can Encode MPEG2 or MPEG4.

The file generated is in MS format, but the size is small at reasonable quality. Quality can be controlled.
