My older digital camera used to make low quality 100MB+ (for 5 - 6 mins of video) MOV files for videos I took

I have around 70GB of these videos and I would like to bring them into a managable size without compromising the quality further.

Would transcoding it to AVI (perhaps XVID + MP3) work?

Which batch transcoding tool might help me do this with minimum manual intervention?


You would be better off just to leave it as MOV.

ffmpeg -i in.mov out.mov

FFmpeg will assume
H.264 video codec
High profile
AAC audio codec
128 kbit/s audio bitrate
