ive filmed small videos for projects and put them in usb, and I dont know which format of codec eg.avi, mpeg and wmv gives the best compression with the similar quality? It doesnt have to be full HD quality but at least average VCD to SVCD quality for sampling.

thx

.avi in the format of divx has always been really good, I think. You can get a free trial of the software and the codec at divx.com

the codec is free, just to mention, because I'm pretty sure I didn't clarify it enough. Most of the .avi stuff I see is good quality. I don't see much terrible stuff like I see in tons of .wmv and such files.

It all depends though. How long are your videos?

If you don't have any luck with MPEG you could maybe try MP4

From my experience MP4 is about 20% bigger than AVI. I always use ImTOO MP4 Converter but the smallest file size I have ever gotten it to would be with AVI without noticeable quality loss

Just a point here; if you want the LOWEST size witht eh LEAST quality you can convert it into .3GP that's what mobiles use and you can get a 20MB file at around 2-3MB

Its an absolute pain. Because the videos that are around that size are taking up a fair amount of space on my mobile's memory card :flowers:

I agree my mobile memory is only 20MB but I manage to have about 4-5 videos with 5-6 songs fairly comfortably :flowers:
