Default Quality decrease for low-end system?

I own a 233 w/ 4MB video and 192 ram (no laughing!!!) and I don't care about the quality of DiVx. Can you suggest me some tools to reencode or convert my friend's big movies (most are divx 4.x) to make them playable on my comp.???

Decreasing the bitrate and resolution of the video will be your best option:
1. Open AVI file in Virtual/nandub
2. Set Video tab to Full Processing Mode
3. Set Audio tab to Direct Stream Copy
4. Under Video tab, select Filter and choose the Resizer filter. Input an appropriate resolution (smaller than original, eg. 320x240) and use Bilinear Resizing mode.
4. Under Video, select Compression and choose the DivX codec. Input the new bitrate that you have determined using a bitrate calculator (so that the final AVI size is smaller than the original). Choose 2-pass encoding mode in order to minimise loss of quality.
5. Go to File -> Save as AVI and give a name to the new file

Edit: Given your low system spec, it may take some time for the conversion to finish.

Always glad to help out.

Just wondering about this statement of yours: "the movie ran fine without skipping." Were you referring to the original file or the one you reencoded?

I was referring to the file I reencoded, of course, because I can barely get 10 fps from a normal quality Divx (700MB)
