Best video converter

Hi, I need a video converter that converts from mp4 to avi so that i can email a movie. I found most just allow 20mbs. The movie is 30 minutes and I reduced it from 2gb to 1 gb, but I have to get it down a lot lower than that! I downloaded a couple of programs and can't get it any lower. BTW, I'm trying to email to an individual.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

So you're looking for the worst video converter.

Quality is related to size: the bigger the file, the better the quality. And there is kind of a minimual acceptable size. And for a 30 minutes video that's so big that most mail providers won't accept it as an attachment. And if it's 10 MB or so, that's equivalent to 100 pics at Internet quality.

Time to go and search for alternatives. There are many file sharing services that let you put a (big) file onto them and your friend read them. To name only two: dropbox and yousendit.
