:confused: I have a short video which I have recorded from TV (less than 1 min in duration) and is 34mb in size; I would ultimately like to make this video smaller in size and into one single file (I'm not too fussed with which extension it ends up having).
I have never attempted this conversion process before and am hoping someone can advise of a converter which can not only perform this, but also save the video quality as close to the source as possible.:o:
Due to a learning disability and poor IT knowledge could I please request that any responses don't contain technical terms.
You can give Format Factory a go. I think it's pretty easy to figure out, just choose the output format you want and another window will open so you can choose what file(s) to convert and what quality and dimensions you want.
One minute of video won't take long to convert so you can experiment with the output until it's a combination of smaller size yet still good in quality. I like AVI-Xvid but DVD quality mpg is a good preset too.
Thanks for your super-quick response. Is Format Factory freeware?
Sure is, but as always these days, be very attentive during the install if you try it, use Custom install if it's an option and uncheck or decline any extra programs or utilities or toolbars or...you get the drift. I think it offers to install inside codecs at one point also and those you'll probably want, they work with Format Factory.
I use Format Factory and it is easy to use and depending on how you save the file you can make some pretty small file sizes..
Thanks for your input guys; much appreciated, you're starting to give me confidence as well.
Just go for it.
Make sure you make a copy of whatever file you are working on or same the edited one under a new name as not to overwrite the original.
I downloaded a program called AppGeeker video converter which converts AVI to other format and vice versa plus you can resize video files to fit tablets/phones perfectly if u want. Great piece of software I have ever used.
It also enable you to merge multiple videos into a massive file.
Anyway, give it a try.
