compress DVD video to CD size
on Apr 13, 2006 at 2:28:44 pm

I fear this is probably an oft-asked question, but I couldn't find any previous posts, excuse me if it's repetitive!

Someone wants to give me a DVD of his band (40 minutes), already edited -- he just wants me to compress it so it's small enough to put on a CD.

I'm not sure the best way to do this. Any suggestions?

I have FCP (no Compressor), Cleaner, QT Pro, Toast....

Thanks!
April

HandBrake is a remarkably easy-to-use app for doing this, suitable for MPEG-4 output (including H.264 if you wish) in either the MP4 or AVI container. Do a two-pass encode with file size set to 700 MB and burn the resulting file to CD; should work nicely.
