  1. Hi im not sure if this is the right forum to place this on but so be it:

    i have a video file that is .avi i have used a program that has converted it to a .Mpeg format as i want to burn it to make a VCD, but the problem i now have is the file is 800MB, and the CD i wish to burn it to is 700MB, is there a way, with or without another program that can compress the video down to 700MB but it still be playable as an VCD on a DVD player?

    You could always purchase some 800MB cd-r`s, this would save you the problem of trying to compress the file.

    Just a thought.

    you need a compressor that can take out frames, I use cucusoft avi to mpeg as its pretty good at this sort of thing go to and have a look at the ratings at the software, my knowledge on this sort of thing is a bit dated but I know you can drop the extra 100mb
