Question Quicktime Photo-JPEG to DivX

First of all, sorry for being a n00b and posting right away, but I'm trying to do about a million things at once, so I can't really look through all the forums right now to see if this has been answered before. I apologize if it has.

Anyway, I have a HUGE Quicktime mov file that was compressed using Photo-JPEG compression on a Mac. The file works and plays wonderfully on Mac and PC, but the problem is that the file is 512MB, and that is not really something I can post on my website. (It is my demo reel, and I wanted to have it available from my website.) Anyway, I was hoping someone could tell me how I could go about converting this file to DivX format, and compressing it so that it is bearable over the Internet? I am looking at hopefully between 30 and 80M, with hopefully decent clarity after compression. The resolution is NTSC (648x486), and I could probably cut that in half if necessary (although I would rather keep it that size).

Anyway, any thoughts/suggestions? I hope this can be done with freeware/shareware. Thanks in advance!!

I often use EOvideo software to convert my Quicktime file to AVI. It had capability to split, reduce resolution, merge/join between different format, and the result was superb. I like this tool very much.

Unfortunately this wasn't FREEWARE/SHAREWARE.

You can use TMPGenc with QT plug in for Freeware stuff.

Now it your choice !

TMPGEnc doesn't look like it reads Quicktime MOV files.

You must grab QTread plug in then it will read MOV file. Just scroll down at TMPGenc download page (At the bottom section).

I tried the trial version of EOvideo... for some reason, it crashes when I press Start to convert. (I am using WinXP Pro.) This is seriously annoying me.

Screen capture software may be useful (you could search for shareware/trial offers).

Otherwise, Quicktime professional can export to other formats and later convert to divx.

Yeah, just grab your error. Cause I already used EOvideo for a year and never crashed.
I used the latest Quicktime Pro and EOvideo (Full Version).
But I'm run on Win 98 lite

You can use RAD video tools (freeware!) to convert almost any video format to .avi. Here is the link to the page:
http://radgametools.com/bnkmain.htm
The actual file download path is:
http://radgametools.com/down/bink/radtools.exe
You can even encode with this if you desire or simply convert to an uncompressed .avi (indeo or something) and then fine tune the conversion in VirtualDub or something.
