Taking digital video to another level

Technology just never ceases to amaze me. Just this week, I took the contents of 3 DVDs that I had produced for family and friends over the past couple of years along with the contents of 3 full length MiniDV tapes from my Digital Camcorder and converted the lot to DivX format using DivX Converter.

The total size of all of the above in MPEG2 format was just short of 14GB (Lord knows what it was in raw format) but once converted to DivX format (MPEG4) I was able to fit the lot onto a single DVD which I was duly able to play in my brand new, all singing all dancing, MPEG4 DVD player purchased from Aldi not 3 weeks ago for a mere €50!
