is there any software or codec which can convert(compress) the vcd file(.dat) into any other format which is small in size but doesnt compromise on quality. also i should be able to reconvert the file into its original format(.dat), so that i can make VCD from it. i hav some .avi videos which are good in quality and small in size(70 minutes of 352 MB) can i get these softys on P2P n/ws ? are they free ? i heard about divx what is it? i installed divx from the Digit DVD but there wasnt any coding software with it.
