Open the AVI file you wish to convert in VirtualDub.
And then go to: 'Video > Compression...'
Up pops the following box below. Choose Mpeg-4 Low-Motion
and hit the configure button (highlighted in red).
Then up pops the codec options. Use one of the bitrate
calculators that can be downloaded from Digital Digest to make
sure the movie will fit into the size you need. 650kbps will usually
fit ANY movie on a single CD, but you can usually get away with
between 900 and 1000kbps for a 352 x 240 VCD movie for better
quality see my quality guide if you are unsure about correct bitrate
Now select the audio settings by going to: Audio
> Full processing mode (so the black dot appears by it).
Then Audio > Compression.
Up pops this box below. Choose Mpeg Layer 3 or DivX
;-) Audio 64kbps, 441 kHz, stereo. And press OK.
That's it! Save AVI...
Here we go! The picture on the left represents the
original AVI movie and the one on the right represents the DivX
version. For even faster encoding you can set the priority settings
to 'Highest' and turn off the 'Show input' and 'Show output' video
by unchecking the boxes. These can be turned on at any time to
see your progress.
