Open them in windos movie maker, if you have XP. When you save the video it converts it to .wmv which is the same quality but half the size.
Or use adobe premier to convert it to some divx format or even a more compressed mpeg.

I prefer divx over wmv, but the choice is yours...
Divx is far better the wmv. DVDs are mpegs too, so converting your mpegs to divx is the same as converting DVDs to mpegs, except you don't have to rip the DVD.
Here's the short version:
Download the Radium MP3 codec, a divx codec, and virtualdub.
Open the movie in virtualdub.
Select "full proccessing mode" for audio and video. Select the divx codec for the video, and mp3 for audio.
Save the AVI.
More detailed instructions for virtualdub can be found on the web.

ya...what i6s1 said.
If you're having trouble finding those programs and codecs, go to www.divx-digest.com
