    can anyone point me to a free program download.. or a link..
    where i can compress a mpeg file from like 50 megs down to something thats more reasonable for buffering?
    just tried to download a program but it wont work.. figured someone else here must have tried this..?

    the only way i have been able to do it is cut the quality, cut the framerate and cut the size. all that and it usually looks like poo-poo

    mpeg in itself is compressed, just like a jpeg is a compressed picture,as opposed to raw, or tiff

    If you load it into MS moviemaker as a project, then resave it as a movie, you can choose quality and size and such

    Thats how I got the U7 epic from 9mb to 1mb
