I don't know if this is the right topic i post it in, sorry.

I have 15 video's, recorded from a game.
Now, all 15 pieces are about 350MB big.

I want to place them all onto 1 DVD from 4.4GB.
But in total it's 5.11GB...

Is there any program that can get each part smaller???
So that all 15 Pieces fit on 1 DVD???

And what format is smaller then avi???
If so, which program should i use??

Thanks in advance.

Does this problem have anything including the word "Fraps"? :p
Well try loading the files in "Windows Movie Maker", and save them in other format, that usually works out.

Considering .avi files are big as hell. :p

you can use avidemux to simply re-scale the video resolution
but are you going to be burning to the DVD as AVI format, or as DVD format? (I have no clue how the second part works, but your DVD recording software may have an option to automatically resize the files for burning)

No, they were not recorded by Fraps...
Using a input/output device... Can't remember the name of the machine though...

Anyways: Windows Movie Maker only Loads the sounds and no video...
So that's not an option either...

Well, the resolution needs to be the same.
I want to use Windows DVD Maker for this DVD-making...

I use Vista :mad:
Anyways: Is MPEG, WMV or MOV smaller then AVI???

AVI is just a container type. What codec is used inside? To find out choose Information/Properties in you video player (e.g. for PowerDVD it'll be Show Information option from context menu).

It's using:

Video - XVID
Audio - mpga


Does this help in any way??

Well... XviD has a wide range of quality/compression settings, you may choose presets or customize yourself. Generally speaking decrease the quality a bit and increase compression rate, this will make them smaller (fit your limits) :)

Use quicktime pro and you can compress video from there. :)

Never use .avi always use .mov it has higher quality.

Not a total apple fan, I don't own a mac yet :rolleyes: I've always had Microsoft computers, yes I have used Mac's before but that was at College.

Besides my University Lecturers always mention use .mov, I'm on a 3D Animation course.

.mov uses best compression but still keeps the film in HD.

Not right as:

Therefore very codec-dependant.
Besides I won't recommend QT personally as well - clumsy... Nuff said.

^yeah.. i just use k - lite plus my favorite video player for everything. no need for apple software unless you have a site that requires that plugin. but I hate those.

It's not you just need to setup the compression settings properly, then it works like a charm.

Everyone in the film and video games industries uses QT. :tea:

^QT is not a media container or codec type - therefore there is not any "setting compressions" with QT. QT is just a media player developed by apple for media types supported by apple. and yes... it is a very clunky player.

Didnt they make .mov container for use with Quicktime?
