Unhappy Encoding MPEGs

Can anyone offer some advice as to the best way to encode MPEGs? I have an ATI "all in wonder pro" video card and I can "record" straight into MPEG or AVI format from a video source in real time, but I end up with 100meg files for 3 minutes! I've seen other 3 minute MPEGs of comparable quality at 25 megs. Is there some compression program out there that can condense this for me?

Also, is MPEG the best way to distribute or QuickTime?

If it is for distribution on the internet I suggest you use the ASF format from Microsoft.

This one is of good quality and takes much less bandwidth. I know a site with movies which had over 400 Megs of MPEGs video.
Now all of these takes under 100 megs.

The last version of the Microsoft Media Player reads them.
