But how do I do it with VLC. oh and it is a .MOV file.

Answer #3

Well you have to play the video file in VLC then hit record on it and the settings you have this to record will be your output file, but you have to set it up to do this.

Answer #4

ok. I’ll try it thanks

Answer #5

I would sugest opening Windows Movie maker, importing the video file you want to compress and press “publish” then push “This computer”, name it then choose one of the three choices. the topone makes no change, the middle one you can up or lowwer the size ( Don’t go too low or it will look crappy) and I don’t know what the bottom one does. Then hit Publish! Hope this helps :) If it doesn’t, tell me.
