    Best would be to encode it to DivX, XviD, OGM or something else. I wouldn't know which is fastest, I would imagine that either one would take quite some time considering the size of the original file.

    With the required formats codec, for example if it's divx take a look at http://divx.com/

    1.) use virtual dub found at www.virtualdub.com duh!
    2.)open video
    3.) select codec for video pref DIVX or Xvid
    4.) go to audio check full processing mode
    5.) select desired codec pref mp3
    6.) save as avi

    Its probably AVI in raw format, uncompressed, and its probably an edited video of some sort. Use Virtual Dub and encode. Keep the resolution settings the same, and if you want it to be DVD-like quality, us like 4500kbps video.

    Actually, we could also do with knowing what you want to do with the video once compressed? If you're wanting to play it in a hardware DVD player, obviously DivX isn't going to work.

    So what do you actually intend to do with the video?
