How small????
You can recompress with a lower bitrate = quality loss.

Just curious....Is re-compressing your files really worth it?
It takes a lot of time.The quality loss will be permanent.
IMHO I think burning them onto cd's are much easier.

gs0666 provided all the information that should be necessary for this problem:

re-encoding suing a lower bitrate

- open file in virtualdub
- select a compression codec AND apropriate bitrate in the video section
- set audio to either direct stream or use a lower compression, too
- file => save as

a bitrate calculator will help - fiurther infos can be found in the sticky posting: beginners start here.
