Anyway to resize BR 720p videos without losing quality?

Hello,

I would like to know if there is a way to resize (the size of the video itself not the resolution of the screen) , let's say a movie that is Blu Ray 720p which in size is about 7GB to 4.3xGB .. How do I do that?

And how the hell does a group like SecretMyth convert a full Blu Ray 720p movie which normally takes 4-8GB to a full Blu Ray 720p movie but only takes up to 1.5GB without losing any notable quality?

What I mean is, how to shrink the file size without effecting the quality..

I think you really can't. But the quality difference may not be noticable. Easiest way to "shrink" is to try another codec (filetype). You can experiment with Format Factory and see which result you like. E.g. .wmv to .avi or .mp4 should save about 75%. Even more to .flv.

I am just uploading a little video tutorial for Format Factory. I will post it later - i never know how much time Vimeo may take to convert and post it. But it should be less than 1 hour since it is only 26MBs.

The upload is complete. They tell me that they will convert it in 40 minutes - if you don't pay, they put you at the end of the queue, LOL.
Btw: What is the filetype of the video you have?

Hmm, this is an iffy proprietory codec owned by Matroska. I never had to deal with one of those. I hope the conversion will work. I saw this link and the matter seemed to be very involved. But let's see.
Vimeo started the conversion of my video tutorial. It should only take a few more minutes.

Here you find the tutorial. On the bottom right of the little screen is the control for full screen.


PS: I just saw it runs very fast. So let it buffer for a couple of minutes - start it and then stop it and wait before you rstart. Nothing ever works perfectly.
Try to convert the .mkv to .avi. My guess would be that this is the best option.
