How to Get From Here to There?

I have several episode recordings that I would like to cut the commercials and get them to a smaller size for archiving and later burning to a DVD for playing in my DVD player.

I also have some files acquired in one way or another over time that I have experimented on today playing them as files in my DVD player.

My current recorded files are around 6 - 7 gbs, and recorded as mpg files in 1920X1080 HD files from OTA TV.

I'll have listed below some of my acquired files and their specifications below, and would like some suggestions on how to get from the 6 - 7 GB file size down to the 350 MB to 700 MB sizes while retaining as good a quality as those suggested below?

I don't mind 700 Mb sizes, but would like to know how the below sizes and qualities might have been achieved?

What software would you suggest while we are waiting on some of the issues I mentioned in another thread are being resolved?

The Xvid files seem to have a better quality than the Divx files do.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and answers. :)

I use XviD4PSP 6.0, MakeMKV & AutoGK for all my encoding needs. But like any other recoding process you need to tweak, that's where the forums of these programs come in handy.
