    Hi all, I have many m2ts files from my hd camcorder and would like to compress them if possible, whilst also keeping them ps3 friendly (streaming to ps3 via pc). Any suggestions for suitable software to do this?

    the m2ts files are PS3 friendly, and if your streaming, file size wont be relevant.........

    are you concerned about storage space........?

    Thanks for the recommendation. However the Ultimate is $60 and lower products are at least $40. I was hoping for a small utility of some kind if possible. I saw a recommendation for Handbrake recently but haven't had chance to look into that yet. Have you come cross that at all?

    The storage space itself isn't particularly an issue at the moment, it's just that I have all of my videos/photos/music backed up to an online backup service, the cost of which increases as the amount to be backed up increases. My thoughts were to keep all of the original files in a separate folder but compress them to another folder and just back up the compressed versions.

    From what I have been reading, the compressed files will be fine in terms of quality for general viewing anyway.

    Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate is expensive, but works beautifully.

    I'll be honest, I have Handbrake installed but never tried it.

    I'm sure you'll be able to get a freeware video compressor, you must be able to...Handbrake may well be one of them...

    + 1 for Handbrake, if and when I require encoding, this always does a relible, fairly quick job.......

    Thanks for all of your advice. I'll take a look at Handbrake as a starter and see how that works out first.
