STEP ZERO - WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT ?
Say you have a 100 MByte file - you want to compress it to around 60 Mb or even less

You hear through the grape-vine that DivX and VirtualDub are the way to go
Here's how.
First off make sure you have installed the DivX codec and VirtualDub on your system

By the way... in case you don't already have a copy of either of these...
take a look at the "Finding Software" section below

..or to find those programs (and just about anything else) just type in the phrase in a search engine....
...of course this is how all kinds of other stuff can be found too......
Once you have them, and you've installed, and you've rebooted your computer

Now run VirtualDub
There are several things you can do to make the original file smaller while not sacrificing quality
*Video Compression

*Frame Rate
*Audio Compression
From there you can make the picture quality better and possibly diminish file-size even more
*Video Filters

Finally you can remove excess scenes and frames,
and divide the final file up if its too large as a single file,
and maybe even polish up the final file by removing artifacts

*Scene Editing
Let's take a look at each of these in turn.
NOTE : Most sections of this manual have been reordered, rewritten, and redone.
Even if you have read the previous version of this manual, PLEASE READ through the entire manual in order again.
STEP ONE - VIDEO COMPRESSION
Load in the file you want to edit into VirtualDub
by choosing OPEN or by clicking-and-dragging the file icon onto the VirtualDub window
NOTE : Load a small file into VirtualDub right now, and try this out while reading it.
Choose COMPRESSION under the VIDEO menu, as shown here

When Compression is selected this menu comes up
Choose the type of codec (compressor/decompressor) you want to use - generally that will be DivX

NOTE:
Low-Motion is best for most movies
Fast-Motion is only good when almost the entire movie is very fast paced (action movies..)

Typically, use the highest numbered DivX available (divx-4), and use the Low-Motion setting.

REMEMBER
What you are aiming for is MAXIMUM compression with MINIMUM quality loss
So just choosing the compressor is NOT ENOUGH

Now you have to configure it and fiddle around with the settings
Start off by clicking the "CONFIGURE" button (as shown above)
and this window pops up
Generally keep the smoothness/crispness settings as it is
The Keyframe Setting
There are abundant reasons to change the keyframe setting to every "1" second,
rather than keeping the default setting of "10" seconds.

One reason is that this allows for LESS LAG TIME when searching through the file during playback.
Another reason is that the video quality will be better if the file is ever edited later.
Still another reason is that splitting up a file later on will be much easier to do.
