All Video Converter doesn't look like it supports Vista. Does it compress the video so that it's small enough for video streaming from a web site? The videos that i get are about 8GB because we are videoing a 45 minute talk on a weekly basis. I have Nero which compresses it to about 3 or 4GB so it fits on a DVD but i haven't found a setting on it that will compress it further.

Sorry, just a follow up question if you don't mind. What should the size of the video file be after the conversion? Just so i know what to look for.
