I have these 50 MB home movies on my website that take forever for people to download. Sure, I can compress them down to a couple megs–as an mp4 or avi file–but then they look like crap! So what’s the best file compression format that preserves quality??

    The best video compression codec is H.264 or AVC.
    Windows Media Video 9 is not bad either and Microsoft provides free tools as well.
    You may want to reduce both the picture resolution and the bit rate for best results.
    Finally, perhaps you should consider enabling video streaming on your web site.

    have you tried converting them to the DiVX format.the quality to size ratio is good.and you can add a free downloadable DiVX player on your site,so people can watch your movies after download if they don’t have the codecs installed on their systems.hope that helps.
