I have an AVI video file recorded by my laptop web-cam. It's only 10 minutes but it has so large size, 3.9 GB! I'm not expert in multimedia but I've seen really good quality long movies in only 4 GB. So, I think this file size is not rational for only a 10 minutes video.
For days, I'm trying to re-encode this video to decrease it's size with no human sensitive changes in it's audio/video quality (because it's an important family video). But, I could not find any helpful material on Internet about this. I just tried avconv on Ubuntu Linux but every time I get errors which I am not familiar with them.
The current audio/video codecs are: (reported by avconv)
Duration: 00:10:47.08, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 48489 kb/s Stream #0.0: Video: rawvideo, bgr24, 640x480, 32.99 tbr, 32.99 tbn, 32.99 tbc Stream #0.1: Audio: pcm_s16le, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 1411 kb/s
I have several files like above which I would like to write them down to a few DVDs. I am not familiar with audio/video codecs and formats. Could you please help me how I can do this, again I bold with no human sensitive changes in it's quality? i.e. like normal movies quality on a DVD.
Thanks in advance!
