    1717 * Convert your file to the xvid format. For linux users, you can use [http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/download.html ffmpeg], Linux, Mac, or Windows users can download [http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html mplayer] and use the mencoder tool it provides. See [http://www.engagemedia.org/help/how-to-compress-video Engage Media tutorial] for details on the settings. Here's an example of me using mencode on an m4v file:
