    Hello everyone. :)
    Sorry if Im posting this is the wrong place, but my digital camera takes *really* dark videos, so I am using a video editing program called virtual dub to brighten the videos. They turn out great, but when I save them;; they are HUGE. Pre-editing, the videos are usually around 4.94 MB. After I brighten & save them, they are app. 130 MB. for a 25 second video. They are both saved as AVI files so I dont see why there is such a drastic difference?? Anyone have any ideas how I can shrink the video sizes?
    Or, does anyone know of an editing program I can use that I can brighten my videos without changing the files size [[much]].? Thanks :)

    Virtual dub is as good as most.
    You need to open the 'video' drop down and select the video compression. Similarly, for audio. Good avi video codecs to reduce size are divx6 and xvid. Good audio codec is mp3.

    YOu will want to determine that the player you plan to use can play the codecs you pick.
