And when I say "web viewing," I don't mean we want clips that look great and perfect at full-screen resolution; we just want easy little clips that default to, say, 320x480 or even smaller, so we can provide short snippets of advice in near-postage stamp size for visitors, a la web 1999 or thereabouts <grin>.

I've always gotten good results using Super[1] to convert and shrink
videos. And if you're going to post it online, I'd recommend going
with flash rather than .avi.
