    Greetings! I am new to this, so please be patient. I recently captured some
    video from a Digital8 tape I made, using Sony's capture software.
    Apparently, it saved the files as .AVI files, although the properties only
    shows them as Video Clips. They are HUGE in size...a 24-second clip with
    sound is 166 MB! Is there a way I can convert them to MPEG, or some other
    acceptable format and size? I'd like to share them with family via email,
    but right now that's not possible.

    Any suggestions on Microsoft products, Media Player, or any of the other
    downloads which I might use? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Use Windows Media Encoder or Windows Movie Maker, they does an excellent job
    at shrinking file size.
