problems shrinking AVI file

posted in Encoding

I have an AVI video file (no audio , just video) and its about 4minutes and it ways 53.3MB which is rather to heavy for a 4minute video without audio . so i am trying to shrink this video to about 10 or 15mb with virtual dub . I have seen articles online here : and here on how to use virtual dub BUT in my own case whenever i try to shrink my video i get an “error 100” message . I would appreciate some help or suggestions . Here is the video analysis from media info:


Format : AVI
Format/Info : Audio Video Interleave
File size : 53.5 MiB
Duration : 3mn 42s
Overall bit rate : 2 020 Kbps

ID : 0
Format : TechSmith
Codec ID : tscc
Codec ID/Info : TechSmith Screen Capture
Duration : 3mn 42s
Bit rate : 2 014 Kbps
Width : 313 pixels
Height : 224 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 1.397
Frame rate : 15.000 fps
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 1.915
Stream size : 53.3 MiB (100%) reply

my first guess is the frame size is an odd number (313 pixels wide)

try a resize. video, filters, add, resize. i would guess 314, 316, or 320 will work.

also be careful using codecs if you have a 64-bit version of windows. you’ll probably want the 32-bit version of virtualdub, as well as the 32-bit version of xvid, because I believe the techsmith codec only comes in 32-bit. reply
