Are you really sure you just need to compress a file? Or do you need to play the compressed file or may be stream it? The difference is fundamental.

read this: Technical Article about data compression @[^]

you need to search for data compression - not for video compression.

Formally, you are absolutely right, so I voted 5. However, I suspect that OP has just failed to make the question clear, but actually it was about video compression. From the question, I'm not sure OP understands the huge difference between the two.

I was not clear about that too. First I wanted to post some about MPEG etc.
But then I realized that he wants to transmit a compressed file - or something like that.
