I'll start here. These are free converters. [I think.]

These cost money.

You can get a lot of file size reduction simply by lowing the resolution to 720 x 480 which is the standard size for DVDs.

WMV is probably a good format to use if you playback through Windows.
How much compression you will get is hard to say because Frame Rate and Frame Size settings have a lot to do with it.
I did find a remark that said a 8 MB AVI file converted to a 1.7 MB WMV file but I dunno anything about the settings they were using.
