We've all been in that situation where we want to send a video file but can't because the file is simply too big. Ashampoo Movie Shrink & Burn can read and compress any video file that you can open with Windows Media Player as well as MPEG-2 (.vob) and QuickTime (.mov) files. The CD burning function supports multi-session CDs and over 1,500 CD burners.
For beginners to video compression, this is an excellent tool. Many video compression programs ask you to set many confusing technical parameters yourself which means that you end up spending a lot of time experimenting until you find the right settings to produce the results you want. Ashampoo Movie Shrink & Burn does all this for you or you. All you have to do is decide how big you want the output file to be – the program then automatically calculates the right settings for producing the best quality at that file size. The compression process can however take a long time so make sure you're not in a hurry.
I'd highly recommend this tool for those that are not confident enough to compress a video file via a video editor or other means.
