Need video compression programs

Ok I'm trying to compress my stinkin holiday video footage. They're normal mpegs but whenever I try to compress them I get 2 problems. Either the quality is crappy or the quality is good but the video moves in fast forward. I've compressed clips in the past and never had problems untill now. Stuff I've used is SUPER, Total video converter, winavi, and some other crappy ones. Give me info on what you use that works cause its driving me up the wall.

divx? http://www.divx.com/divx/windows/converter/

I don't do these things neither, but it doesn't hurt to try it and see if it's any good.

Theres no way some of you dont know a good program. I know theres some movie whores out there, JOE!

divx compressor program doesnt want to work for it. It screwed up when I updated it and no amount of uninstalling etc will fix it.

The best program I found that didnt screw with the aspect size of the clip after compression was the AVS Video Compressor program. It was brilliant. It even made compressed videos look better then other programs I tried. Sadly the new version cant be cracked and the olde cracked versions dont want to work for some reason. Cant figure it out. The new unregistered version leaves a watermark in the middle of the movie so its useless to me.

Any ideas? I've tried heaps of crap. Total Video convertor, Xilisoft, SUPER! etc. Someone tell me a good one!

Yeah tried that. For some reason it has a spastic fit with my uncompressed mpeg clip and doesnt accept it.

Joe, as well as myself use Macs. Which come with iMovie. If you want Con, send me your video through Skype or something and I'll compress it for ya.

Flask isnt too bad. The quality at 1200bits compression with divx mode isnt as clean as some other players. But I'm still getting the problem where in media player it comes out 4:3 but in my KM Player it comes out in 16:9, which is the proper res since its a widescreen recording.

Maybe you could give me some pointers to get passed these problems with flask?
