Hi Friends
Many of us uses VLC Media Player to see our videos and even listen to mp3 files although i just use it for videos only . The reason : it's free and support almost every video file . But many of us don't use and infact don't even know about about its hidden features . One of those hidden features is that you can convert any video file and make it of your desired size . Yes , you can . Although i am still to master this trick but i can show you a glimpse of it .

  1. Open VLC Media Player
  2. Select "wizard" from file menu
  3. click on "Transcode/Save To file"
  4. Click on "select a stream" and choose the video file that you want to convert . And if you don't know , you can even stream your desktop to create a screen-cast . Just google it if you want to know more about it .
  5. Click on next
  6. Now select the appropriate Video and audio codec options . Just kep a eye on the comments and most of the time the video and audio codec don't match . so it's quite possible that audio in video will be missing in your converted file . Also please note the encapsulation method suggested for e.g. MPEG PS . Your both the video and audio codec should support a common encapsulation method .
  7. In the next options screen . Select the common encapsulation method of your audio and video codecs .
  8. In the next options screen , enter the desired name for your converted file including the extension i.e. avi . With variety of codecs you can use other extensions too .
  9. Now , in the next step , you will see vlc playing a mute audio file . Don't worry , it is not playing any file , infact it is now showing a progress bar .
  10. Taararaaaa..... complete .
If this worked for you , then please don't forget to bookmark this post and post the settings and codecs you used .

    I like VLC, but have you tried Miro? It is a very versatile video/music player that will play anything.

    I don't have a file menu on my VLC. What version are you using? Mine is 2.03. I'd like to compress .MOV file from 800MB to much less (50mb or so). And don't have any video converters installed and don't really want to download any from cnet either as I've had some bad experiences :( Any help would be appreciated thanks!
