Work with video files

Postby Pablito » Mon, 02 Mar 2009 2:59 pm

Hello,
I've never worked with video before, so I pretty novice in this sphere.
Which programs you can recommend to do simple operations with video?
How to compress enormous mpg-files? To what format should compress? What format is used on sites like YouTube?
A lot of questions, I think there are resources in the Internet about it, can you provide some links?

first get a decent codec pckage . These are needed to encode and decode your video.
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_l ... c_pack.htm

k lite is pretty good to start with

Then get virtual dub
http://www.virtualdub.org/
free easy and plenty of tutorials

If you are looking for a one click solution then you'll have to spend money i'm afraid

XVid coded AVI's are currently the smallest decent quality video's IMHO

Good luck

Hmmm I would give him the benefit of doubt, Norwegian are generally OK folks, and he sounds more intelligent than the average spammer.

Maybe he will soon be relocating here and has registered?

That's what I though until I realized that it's easy to get proxy IP's in Norway so he might not even be there. He's safe for the moment but we're watching nonetheless. :wink:

I think you could be right SMS, he let his guard down a bit, and his true colours are showing through.

dont see what the guys done wrong. all his recommendtions seem pretty good to me!!

DWK ....for once don't live up to your name :D

to OP
for simple cut and paste and encoding try virtual dub or virtual dub mod
both free and are fast. Plus they do a direct stream copy so no re-encoding ( quality loss) occurs.

Good luck
