    Seconded.
    When reading I was thinking, surely this is the easiest option.
    You get virtualDubmod as part of teh Gordian Knot pack.

    xvid and divx are different codecs to x264

    x264 is mpeg4 part 10
    the others are mpeg4 part 2

    Seconded - Gordian Knot Pack is great and you could use it to either knock the credits off or use AGK to compress slightly.

    Ive treid DVD shrink but everytime i drag a file in it says unable to locate something.tfo..

    Any other ideas lads

    Cheers
    Bigasoft Total Video Converter is my favorite compressor.

    It also can convert files to many other formats.

    Hope it is what you are looking for.
