try the microsoft media encoder

its what i use to convert AVI to WMV (which is like MPEG4) for posting on my site

file size = file size * 0.10

and very good quality, not much loss in resolution

also, its free!



mp4 is fine for online use, I guess...

But I'm just too fond of my Lossless codec friends now!  I have no clue why so many big commercial players and programs don't support them!!  Maybe because they are part of the Free and Open Source market?

But they are 100% LOSSLESS!!

File size is still a bit big, but nothing near the 4 GB per minute level! More like 50 MB per minute  (I know - 10 MB per minute is considered big, but that's where the loss of quality comes in!).

I just got a 1 Terrabyte External drive.  I'm saving many of these as compressed and lossy, but keeping the parameter files to re-create if I ever want to.  The ones with no parameter sets just have to stay as they are.

I have an old video editor which does a fine job of converting the avi files VirtualDub makes in to high quality wmv for uploading to video hosts, but their encoding just kills it. 

I do have an old version of the windows media encoder anyhow, but I rarely use it.  I thought it was discontinued at microsoft anyhow.  Did they revive it?  Will it support the Lagarith Lossless Codec?  Or the Huffy UV Lossless Codec?

I'd love to try and encode an mp4 with one of those, but no software seems to allow the combination...

I saw a good shirt the other day while walking through my local electronics shop. It said: "My laptop has more memory than I do".

On a similar note - I caused ultrafractal to crash the other day by trying to render a 40"x30" image a 720 dpi - so it's not limitless yet. It seems to be happy doing it at 600 DPI though, which still should result in a 1.2gb bitmap image. Yes, png is lossless, but it will take half an hour for PSP to finally load after it deals with all of the work to decode it. PSP is the slowest program known to man (excluding Ulead's one and photoshop on a mac, which, amazingly, are slower).

74.5 GB? My hard drive is relatively small, and it's 500 GB. I think that clearly means you need a bigger hard drive.

Did you notice the date on the post?

January 18, 2007.

That was ample back then...
