I have large (4 GB each) HD video files (.avi) recorded using Fraps.
What application and codec (freeware) can I use to encode these videos and make them smaller?
I'd like my videos to be watchable on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and possibly in browsers with HTML5 support.
I've already made a search and found out that h.264 should be OK. But I can't figure out how to encode my videos using it. I've found x264 project and x264 unofficial binary. But it seems to be a command line utility which is hard to use.
Added: My OS is Windows XP or 7, but crossplatfrom solution would be preffered.
