hey all!
over the past months, i've tried a lot of compressors but couldn't find any that was able to compress an .avi movie to an acceptable ratio for the time spent.
i've been unable to gain more than 2% of the file size...

i dont understand why because the codecs are supposed to work only with the frames and pixel blocks, not re-arrange bits so its uncompressable!
why isn't my cpu working at 100% while playing a movie if its already compressed?

or maybe the compressors out there dont have the required filters...?

P.S.: i dont want to reencode my movies to other formats because i will loose quality. (and if i want to keep the same quality it will end up being the same size)

Thanks a lot!!!
