Converting AVI to MPEG1
I used cucusoft avi-mpg converter yesterday. Seems pretty simple. I converted a 280mb avi movie into MPEG 1 format. The file took about 1.15hrs to convert and the size of the new file is 690mb. Is that a good amount of time and what really confuses me is why did it become such a large file? Does that mean if i were to convert a 700mb avi file to mpeg 1 it will end up being like 2GB? WTF!
