Have you ever encountered problem in compressing videos where you wanted the quality of video to be the same while size to be reduced? I have many High Quality AVI and more videos (Ah! Good Old Stage6.Divx times…). I have been experimenting with the videos. If some video is in lets say – size of 80 MB and you want it to be 20 MB or so but you do not want to loose the quality of the video then here is the solution.
I have encountered a common problem with WINRAR and rar files many times. You might have experienced it yourself too. While extracting data, the files are extracted completely but it gives the message of ‘header corrupt’ and user gets the idea that files might not had been transferring completely. You can use other free compression software as well. HJSplit, 7Zip or RAR Knife are few. My question is this, why do you need any software for compression when you can do it without using any program? The compressed file will be safe and best of all, it will be self extracting kind of thing. You will not need any program to unzip it. Just transfer it anywhere and open it in any Windows based OS freely.
Consider the case when you have a single large file and you have to transfer it via low capacity USB drive to another PC. You can not transfer it in one go. So you need to break it down into parts. So that one by one you can transfer its parts and after that join those parts back into single file after transfer. That file can be a video file, audio file, psd file or anything. If you download/upload at rapidshare then you know it is necessary sometimes to break big size file into small pieces/parts to transfer it somewhere. These parts can be joined later on for use. Recently I had to transfer a large file via USB device to another PC. Available resources included a File which was of 3GB and it needed to be transferred and I had 1GB size of USB device. Here is what I did.
RAR is better compression than Zip files. To open or extract RAR files, you need to install WinRar which is not a free application. RAR File Open Knife is a fast and easy-to-use tool that opens RAR files as fast as possible. Its faster than 7-Zip.
Forget about winrar and winzip. Compress data to the maximum limit. You can convert data in GBs into few Mbs of size with this little devil. KGB Archiver is the compression tool with an unbelievably high compression rate. One of the advantages of KGB Archiver is also AES-256 encryption which is used to encrypt the archives. This is one of the strongest encryption known so far. And its free. All you need is a bit stronger hardware. It takes time but its worth it. I have compressed many movies into few mb of size to fit these in my 1GB USB drive with this software. I mean from 5GB to 400mb size conversion; That’s something. Talk about backing up all hard drive into few GBs to fit in a DVD drives.
Suppose you have a folder of funny images to send to your friends? The image files are large, so you compress them into, for example, a .rar file, that you can share with your friends. However, your friends say that they do not know how to open the file. So you direct them to an online service to uncompress that data.
