this may not be the right forum for this but I have a question about video compression. I have a 45-min long or so video file in high-def (~2.8GB), I need to compress it to a couple hundred MB to make it more portable. I am going to make the frame size smaller (currently 720x480) and reduce the framerate slightly. Does anyone know of any compression codecs and qual settings ect to help do that. I tried just using a lower quality setting and I ended up with a 1.2GB file that looked like crap. TIA!

Divx, Xvid, Mpeg 4? They all should do well. You'll want to half the frame size. \
Something like ashampoo will do it automatically for you.
Know this you are never going to keep the quality at high def. standard.
Simple Divx might also help you:
Hope that helps.
