    I would like have a software that can convert and compress a 4.7 gb (dvd ) movie into a 700 MB movie without losing audio and video quality.

    Some of the english movies in axxo print have very high quality and are about 700 mb in size (in avi format).Wat is the convertor used for such high quality conversion.

    I have been trying softwares like total video converter , format factory etc but the common problem of that is quality loss on conversion.How to deal with the issue?

    Dunno if this can be of some use for that particular need but i think you just might find it very useful for other video formats if nothing else.

    The only one that can do it is TMPGEnc but its a paid program.

    The best programs for convertion are:

    Canopus Procoder (paid)
    TMPGEnc Xpress (paid)
    virtualdub (free)

    All of them deliver very high quality if you know how to configure them.

    For finding what encoder/program has been used for the creation of an AVI use MediaInfo.

    Without losing quality, that's tricky ...
    Laws of conservations won't permit that.

    You need to convert your DVD to an ISO, you can do this with the free dvdshrink and back up the movie to an ISO.

    Next download the free fairuse wizard lite 2.9, this program will convert your ISO down to a 700 mb avi. For the best quality you need to use the 2-pass mode and use the h264 codec. A 700mb h264 will look as good as a 900mb xvid. Both are avi and will play on all players that play avi.

    Fairuse wizard lite will keep your video/audio in perfect sync and will allow you to crop out the black bars on the movie. The quality using the h264 codec is acceptable for most people. You need a fairly quickly computer to do these conversions.

    amd 3800 single core = 4 - 4.5 hours
    intel e6300 dual core = 2.5 - 3.5 hours
    amd 9750 quad = 1.5 hours

    The only program that I have used that can produce outstanding quality is dr.divx 2.0, When I watch the files I converted with the doctor it's very close to DVD quality even on my large screen LCD. It produces better quality than fairuse but it has problems with keeping video/audio sync in some conversions.

    I tried almost all the video converters out there and fairuse and dr.divx are the only ones that are easy to use and produce good results, there are programs that are even easier/faster to use but produce low-quality results.
