Is there any inexpensive way to lower the resolution of High-Def videos? Specifically the H.264 format? My other computer, which I have access to more often that this one, can't play high definition files, because the graphics card can't handle it.

DO A BARREL ROLL!

Lolz, but seriously, subbers usually release .avi first and then their HD counterparts, no? I suggest just getting the .avi file... no need to pay money for a program imo...

If you can't watch them properly they will not encode right either you'll still get the delays.

go here http://www.any-video-converter.com/ and scroll down the page and get the free version. Then in the options just set the specs you want the video to be encoded at. I'm not 100% sure that it will be able to convert from H.264 format but it can do most formats to any of the formats that are available in the application.

But at least try it since its free and there is no ads in the software except when you are done encoding it asks you if you want to buy a pay for version but that can be ignored with one button click.

Are you doing this on a mac, windows or linux computer? I know mac/linux can probably just use mencoder/ffmpeg, but i've never used the windows version of it. In my experience it's the easiest and most versitle tool I've used. I mainly use it to transcode anime/tv shows/movies to my n800.

Be warned, it's a command line tool so if you don't like command line stuff, reading documentation, or awesomeness in general; this probably isn't for you.

will do it but make sure to give it priority so you won't get skips and artifacts.

SUPER SAVES MY LIFE
but i only use it for conversions from rmvb for aegisub, which doesn't even apply to this

umm to encode videos down, i use virtualdub or vdubmod
if you're watching for yourself, there are settings you can tweak...and maybe codecs you need to DL? O.o;

Everything just magically works on my compy because I apparently have everything, so I never know anymore...

This program is awesome. I used it to convert files to be played on my ipod. Easy to use and didn't take long to convert. Thanks

I agree. This is probably the best piece of software I've picked up in awhile.
