if you just need a tool for compressing and do not need to do it through code use the following tool:
http://www.gromada.com

they have a free format converter which will allow you to specify the compression method

TheRedGuy hi!

One more Q: I used the sample code there to encode AVi .. that's cool. But there is one more issue - I cannot figure out hot to pre-set codec I want to use for compressing (user must mannually select it) and it's verry frustrating.

Have you been working on this problem or/and have any suggestions?
