Movies are great but they take up a lot of space, and it can be difficult to fit them onto a CD or, at high-definition quality, even with the compressed audio, on to a regular DVD. Ashampoo Movie Shrink & Burn enables you to compress movies so that they will do just that.
The program uses a wizard interface so it couldn't be any easier to use, and offers support for numerous different video formats: DivX, AVI, Mpeg-1, Mpeg-2, QuickTime, WMV, Video CDs and Super Video CDs. You can also work with various social networking videos from sites such as YouTube and others. Take the best available and then convert and burn to disc.
Different media require different levels of compression, but this program makes all the decisions for you. Simply select the option that's best for you, and away you go. You can create movie CDs for use in DVD players or a PC, movie files for DVD players or a PC, and even movie files for your PDA.
Movies on DivX CDs are automatically numbered so that the original order is kept on DVD players. VOB files can also be converted.
The latest version supports Windows Vista, will enable you to burn a movie across discs, support for Blu-ray and much more.
