I'm choosing a video codec for storing of my family videos (and sharing some of them in the Inernet as well) which format provides the best compression? I don't care about processor time and the quality should be avarage or just below (I have a cheap cam)

MusicLover, file sizes are directly proportional to the selected bitrate (thought there is another quality based way of encoding with x264).

here you should find plenty of info (including latest windows builds):

command line overview (bit out of date):

(you can skip -hint mp4box command)

and some batch scripts iam using most of the time:
