Reduce size of movie file

Recommended Posts

How can a movie file be reduced in size to be emailed? I have a C-5050Z. As far as I can tell, it stores the clip in two separate files, audio and video.

Does the camera store the image as an .avi file or .Mpeg? If it is mpeg then it will already be compressed. An .avi file is generally uncompressed. In any event both types of file size can be huge and not to user friendly in terms of sharing via the web etc. Unfortunately, reducing the file size of either or any type of movie file is not as easy as picture compression, where you simply save the image as a compressed file such as Jpeg and control the level of compression.

 

What you will need is some video editing software that enables you to capture and compress the file with a suitable codec. Software packages generally bundle loads of codecs (or compression agents) with them for you to use.

 

Hope this helps.

I think it saves in AVI format. I will check the software out. Thanks!

If you don't have the software & desperate to produce a movie file email the file to me & I will convert if for you.

 

PM me to get my email address.
