Wasn't sure where to put this... Im making Video tutorials for mapping. I was working, and i knew that it was gonna be big, but im not even half way done, and its twice the size of the largest file on jk3files (which is SJC's Map pack pt 3). Can someone please help me in compressing these videos? NOTE: Its Video and Sound, im using CamStudio to record

Open a new project in Windows Movie Maker, hit CTRL+I and import your video, drag the clips onto the timeline in the correct order to recompose your video, and do the following:

1. Go to File -> Save Movie File. 2. At the first screen of the wizard, select "My computer", and hit next. 3. On the next screen, enter the filename and location you want to save the movie to, and hit the next button again. 4. The next screen will be about the format and compression. Find the blue link which says something about showing more choices, and click it. 5. Click the 'Other settings:' radio button, and from the drop-down menu, select 'Video for broadband (512 Kbps)'. 6. Finish up the Save Movie File wizard. It's rather straightforward.

After that, if it's still too big you can knock it down to the next lowest broadband setting, but the 512Kbps setting is pretty much the internet standard, so it should be fine.

That's the same process I always use to compress my Fraps videos.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
