I captured a 3-minute movie using Pinnacle Studio 9. It`s in DV format and about 400 MB in size. I tried to compress it with several available codecs but only managed to squeeze it down to some 200 MB, plus the video quality is poor. I think a well compressed video of this length should be way under 10 MB but I don`t know what to do...I would appreciate if someone told me what codecs are generally used. It crossed my mind that maybe I shouldn`t capture in DV format which seems to be the largest in size but if I choose some other way the picture is blurred, even in DV it doesn`t look 'perfect' to me. I recorded the video with Sony DCR-TRV140E video camera.
