Wow, 2.4 GB for 17min of .avi??? That right there tells me something is weird. Generally, you can take a 2 hour movie (aprox. 4.5GB - 6GB) and encode it into a 700MB file using Xvid/DivX encoders for the creation of an .AVI format at DVD quality. I think the ratio is around 25:1 possible compression, mind you that is for less than DVD quality.
If it is possible to record your clip over again, I would try that. But make sure what kind of output you are going to end up with. And if there is sound as well, make sure that if it's in mp3 format, it isn't set at 320KB, cause that is just overboard, when 192KB or even 160KB would most likely be sufficient.
I will check out that app you are using, and see what the scoop is on it. Hope this helped.
Pardon me, I just wanted to add this screenshot. This is the Resample applet, I was curious if the version that you have, includes this option? If so, it might be worth a shot. Pay attention to the file output size, and the encoder that will be compressing the file.
I am assuming that since you have both the Media Player Classic, and BS Player, that you have the K-Lite Codec Pack installed on your PC. Another possible problem could be with having all those codecs, and the recorder had trouble with incorperating one or more.
It is very common to have problems after installing a codec pack. If this sounds pertinent, I have some good advice on making sure that you only install the codecs you need for the media that you wish to view, as well as leaving the future possibilities open for clean additions to your codec needs.
