I use DivX for all my video compressions now.
It's a very high quality video/audio compressor. Your final AV file
will have an .avi extension. The only problem that I can forsee,
you'll need to install the DivX codec (a one time installation) into
each Windows Media Player.
Please let us know which one you decided to use and how it worked out
for you, ok?
