I have a digital video cam and want to write video to CD.Can anyone suggest a way of compressing the video size so I can get a reasonable amount onto a CD ? I am using MGI videowave.
Thanks Brendon.

Currently, the best form of video compression is DivX.
It also depends a great deal on the quality at which you record it, but even at a very high quality, you should be able to fit about 60-90 min of video onto one CD.
I dont know what format your program saves the video to, but I would guess it should have an option to save to MPeg.

Go to http://www.divx-digest.com/software/index.htmland you should be able to find an MPEG - DivX conversion utility, they are pretty common nowadays.

I agree DivX is the standard. Two sites to view are divx.com and gdivx.com for codecs, players and lots of information
