Ummmm, maybe.

Kind of hard for anyone to make any suggestions without knowing what file type you're starting with and what type you want to end up with.

edit: and most of these have been asked, you may find the answer by searching also

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Sorry. It is AVI. It is small in size and I want to put in on my cell but unfortunately I don't know what kind of video my cell will accept (which I am asking on another forum).

I used to use XML file converter which converts almost any file type into MP4's. It served the purpose well, quick transfers and the quality was not effected.

Hmm, do you know what format you need it in?
I know there are programs that do this, but I'm not sure what they are..
I'm thinking the format you need for a cell would probably be 3gp
run a google search once you know what format you need to convert to...like avi to blank
