Hi all, I have several home made movies on VHS cassettes, which I wish to copy to DVD. I also have a video card that allows me to record straight from the Video player into an mpeg file. So far so good. However, the mpeg file generated is too big (the source cassette is 3hrs long) and wont fit on a DVD (i dont have a DL burner). This clearly is too long. I could split it into 2 dvd disks, but would like to avoid it if possible. I had a look at nero recode/vision express, but it tells me the quality would be too low. Surely there's a way as I can see many DivX, Mpeg and SVCD movies which are full length but do not occupy a complete DVD space. Sure the quality is lower than the original, but still good enough to watch, and the source, in my case comes from a VHS movie - the quality there cannot be too good in the first place. Also, if possible, I would like to minimise the number of steps required to accomplish this. I realise this is not going to be a one step thing, but the less the better. Any help and ideas would be very welcome.
