I'm new to video capturing and editing and need some advice. Basically i want to archive my old tapes of Friends onto DVD. To make this worthwhile i want to get at least 8 episodes onto one disc.
I purchased Adaptec Videooh! DVD which connects by USB2 and encodes video into MPEG2. However the software supplied 'Sonic MYDVD' does not give you many options in regards to capturing the video. Therefore my files sizes are still too large and i can only get about 4 episodes on one disc.
Is there any software i could use with my USB2 Capture device where i can get a greater level of compression?
Or is there any software which will compress my MPEG2 file down to an MPEG2 of smaller size?
