Re: O/T FILE COMPRESSOR NEEDED
PArt of what your running into here is that the VOB files from the DVD are just a minor mutation of an MPEG2 codec, which is also already hugely compressed. There is a limit to how much you can compress data.
The only way you are going to get that kind of video data to be smaller is to reduce the frame rate or dimensions or recompress it, losing a lot of quality. That's going to take a LONG time, especially on a computer that slow. Just trying to mash the file down to a smaller size with plain old data compression is pretty much a waste of time. It's kinda like trying to zip a JPG..
