    You can use windows movie maker on Windows. When you look under Finish Movie, under Save to my Computer, there are a range of options for you to save it in a smaller file, just that it won't be .avi, rather .wmv.

    some suggestion:

    one:
    If you are taking a 217MB and reduce it to 15MB, and it's already MPEG-4, you might as well not do it. You are looking at just one large block as a picture. That's going to be too low of a bitrate. You might want to try for like 45-55MB realistically
    Two:
    what machine are you using, Windows or Mac?
    Three;
    How long is the video clip?
    Four:
    You may want to check out the ImTOO Products (not free, and not going to give a link, u can google it) if you want to take anything other than a DVD and rip it down, that is, if you use it under windows. I have used it and it works OK, although, it's not fast. This is what you probably don't want to use if you are looking for free. Maybe someone else can provide a link to something like it, but free.
    Five:
    If you are under Mac, there is stuff like FFMpegX that works, it's a free software that you can get on sourceforge.

    Iím wondering what u want to do after u cut avi file to some pieces of 15M files,I guess u want to import them into portable player such as iPod, yes ? if thatís the case, u can make it by setting Start Time and Duration via ImTOO MPEG Encoder(as jackey recommends), u can also output iPod supported files.

    ^^^^^^^^^^he has a valid Point^^^^^^^^^^



    What are you planning on doing with the file once it is done? I think the Ipod thing makes the most sense, and in which case, malise has it about right

    i have some media devices, iPod, mobile phone etc.....i need to import the avi file into them...
    I tried imtoo mpeg encoder after your suggestion. It may make it by setting Start Time and Duration, but Start Time and Duration function of the trial version is unavailable. If no one recommend me a free way, maybe I have to pay for this product. thanks.

    I believe VidCrop is your best bet.
    It can cut parts of a video, change file size, resolution, etc..

    hope this helps

    A program I've used and found reliable is WinAVI. It can convert a lot of media formats to other media formats and you an easily tweak compression with easy understanding... I would say personally anyway.

    You can try using yasa mp4 video converter to convert this avi file to mp4.
