Specs: Win XP, P4/512MB

These files are recorded to my pc with WinTV. They are 1.5GB long. What I want to do is compress the files and switch them to VOB. files so the will fit on a CD. Anybody know of a free program out there?

It would help if you stated what format the files are in now.

Depending on the file type, most video encoding apps should work fine. Have you tried Windows Movie Maker which is included in XP and Vista?

Get a video converter program. With it you can convert the file to DIVX or XVID, which are a lot smaller and still look pretty good. They are playable on some of the new standalone DVD players.

There are lots of converter programs. I use 'Total Video Converter' and 'AVS Converter'.

As far as putting VOB files on a CD, I'm not sure about that. VOB files are used for DVDs.

You can do that. Just burn it as a VCD.
