I have many videos that I want to compress. I've tried 7z. But it could only marginally compress a 188 MB video to a 184 MB archive.
Are there any better available alternatives??
I'm willing to start with lossy compression, because I am not particularly uncomfortable with a wee-bit quality quality loss. If the quality loss is too much, then I would try the lossless compression.
I am running Windows-7 32-bit.
EDIT: The following information bytes may help you guide me to a good answer:
- I checked out the codec details using MediaInfo. In short, it's using the AVC codec. In full, it's like this: 372 Kbps (350 Kbps), 550*412 (4:3), at 25.00 fps, AVC (NTSC) (Main@L3.1) (CABAC/3 Ref Frames). But I must confess...I can't seem to make much sense of this full detail.. :)
- I tried Handbrake. But it ended up increasing the video file's size by 3x instead of compressing it! But I must also add that with Handbrake, I only tries using it to transcode to MKV & MP4. No other setting (like frame size) was changed in this transcode exercise through Handbrake.
