Delw,

I'm using Adobe Premiere 6.0, with some "plug-ins" that came with it as part of the real time editing package I bought last year. It has options to ouput to all kinds of formats. The ones I'm posting here are "Windows Media Files". All I do is "click next" a few times and boom, the program spits out the files. Then I upload 'em to my website and post the links. I really don't know anything about how it all "works", but it's dirt simple easy using Premiere.

I tried outputting some clips to MPEG, the quality was a lot better than the ones I'm posting, but like you say, they were huge - way too big.

DO you have a digital vid camera or a regular one?... I have a sony with s videp and a regular av conection but premier wont use s-video or the av connection.. seems it will use firewire only or will it use the others?

Our camera is digital. The package came with a break-out box that supposedly allows using S video or even old RCA jacks, but I haven't tried it. I just plug the digital video camera right into the editing board (Pinnacle) via firewire.
