Default getting movies to fit on one CD

I'm kinda new at this, but I've figured out how to get decent video and such, and I can get a two hour movie to compress to about 730MB using Virtualdub and DivX. This is just over 700mb, the highest capacity CD-R, which is very annoying. I need to reduce the file size by about 0.3MB per minute. Does anyone know how to do this?

1) If (as I assume, since you speak of burning to a CD-R) you're planning on viewing your videos on your PC, I would STRONGLY advise against SKD_Tech's suggestion. The low resolution of a VCD looks awful at fullscreen on a PC monitor (VCD is intended for playback on TVs via standalone DVD players)

2) You can usually eliminate 20-40Megs by simply cutting off the ending credits

? but ,with a bitrate calculator, you can get any size you want.

about the quality, with a movie over 100minutes in 700mb,
always use mp3 at 96kb, or even divx 3.11 audio at 64kb,
put audio interleave at least at 500ms,
cut end credits and something at the begin of video too,
use temporal smoother filter,
and a res of 576xxx will be ok.

instead of mp3 at crappy 96kbps better go for OGG VORBIS which sounds better at even lower bitrates than 96kbps.

with divx5 or xvid you should be able to achieve great results for 700mb files.

gordiaknot or dvx have all neccessary calculators and routines for those conversions.
