We record the talks we have at Hants LUG meetings on A DV recorder.  

I then grab them from the camera to my media box via firewire using kino
[1]  Then export them to MPEG2. I read this into avidemux [2] to finally
export them as avi [3]

The original talks were in the order of 16G each.  These then reduced to
about a 2G mpeg.  Finally resulting in a 60M avi, 

The final format is then  easier for those in the LUG that missed the
talks to download and view.
