    I have ripped the dvd and now have a 1.24GB .mpg, I can get a 2.52GB .avi but I need to get it alot smaller, quality is not that important, I need to send it via the net so it needs to be about 500 to 700 MB.

    Try creating a divx .avi file instead of mpeg. The file size for a full movie is usually within 500-700mb and the quality is just as good. The only real reason to go with MPEG instead of divx is if you plan on creating VCD or SVCD.

    This is a pretty good guide from the wonderful people who run this website, or you can go here: http://www.doom9.org and follow their guides.

    good luck.

    Tried the divx5 guide and it works great but I still get a 1.42GB avi file, I tried to change some settings to get it smaller but I guess I don't know the right one's to change, any thoughts on the one's to change?
    Thanks

    Yeah, the only thing I can suggest is getting Gordian Knot from http://www.doom9.org.. you will find it by going to "the guides" and selecting the DivX 5 guide.

    This software is a great gui interface to use to change bitrate settings etc. in order to affect the final file size.

    Good Luck again!
