    video file too large

    Tim Flippance Level 1



      I want to submit a 2 minute video to a BBC competition.  They stipulate max file size 50MB.  My video is HDV 405MB size.  A downscaled DVD version is still 95MB, probably because most shots involve a lot of movement.  I tried reducing the target bitrate to 1.5Mbps but even that gives 75MB size.  Reducing the max bitrate from 9MB to 6MB actualy increased the file size to 102MB!!!  Can anyone recommend suitable software/codec to downconvert it to 50MB while retaining as much quality as possible?
