Exclamation Need a good compressor

So as you know I am making some movies out of certain games. What you see on my youtube page YouTube - Dirt 2 Max DX10 gameplay for example is compressed using windows movie maker. Really good quality. But lately WMM is no longer working because of some codec problems. I am using now WLMM which is no longer doing the job with the quality I want for ex: YouTube - Grid at max !!!

So all I need is you guys to name a program that I can use, a program that is simple to use and transforms fraps capture files from 3000MB to ~ 300MB. TY

Under Windows, most programs operate by calling the CODECs that are already on the system to do the work. Hence, you might well still hit the same problems. You're generally best off using H.264, as that is what they're already using.

You will find that Youtube recompress HD video to H.264 at either 1280x720 or 1920x1080, so you want your source to be at that setting. Your "Grid at Max" might well be at 1680x1050, but youtube simply recompressed it down to 1280x720 - losing you quality in the process.

YouTube also seem to run their 1920x1080 streams at just below 5Mbit/sec, including audio. Some people have suggested that YouTube maxes out at 60fps, and other suggested that running higher than 30fps means that the bandwidth limitations will prevent it looking too good.

FFMPEG is still the recommended converter - although it's a complete pain to use without a frontend.

You could try AVANTI - FFmpeg/Avisynth GUI as a frontend to FFMPEG if you want...

Thanks a lot!!! Now after setting everything up (installing FFmpeg and avisynth) I started the process using mpeg4 and avi container. I can use whatever bitrate I want but the end result stays bad. How can I choose another codec and set it up for the job? The h264 says its unknown when I choose it. TA for any answer!

Bad as in incredible bad quality squares moving around. I got Easy h.264 which allowes me to save in 720 several quality presets. I managed to test this Easy h.264 program on 4 different presets and its really really good. The highest quality preset is good enough for me to use it when I want to compress a file for youtube. http://www.cybergamer.com.au/forums/...h.264-by-ajaX/
Actually I am uploading a movie right now and I will post a link, so you guys can see the end result. Give it time to be available in the highest quality. It's also using all 4 cores when compressing. Check it out Aedan. And thanks for your answer !
