    I have an avi that is ~24 seconds long and 46MB. What's a good (free would be great) program to reduce the file size while still keeping as good of quality as possible? Wife needs it to go onto her facebook page.

    thanks. :wavey:

    Assuming it's a raw avi with lpcm audio, use LAME to encode audio to mp3 and use virtualdub to encode the video with xvid.

    h/x264 is also another viable option, but I wouldn't put them in an avi file container

    I think Facebook probably re-encodes uploaded videos, anyway.. does it need to be smaller to meet an upload requirement?
