My company recently bought the Turbo TV video capture board in order to digitize some video footage we have for inclusion in a PowerPoint presentation (Windows 95, Office 97). But when our computer guy installed the board and did the video capture, it produced an AVI file of almost 800 MB for 3.5 minutes of video! From checking the size of some MPEGs I've downloaded, I'd say the file should be about 10 MB in size. How can we convert and compress this file, or is there a better way to do the video capture in the first place, other than using Turbo TV?
