Default Best software to convert videos to DIVX/XVID

As with most cameras when mine takes a video it saves it as a ridiculously huge file, usually around 200mb per minute of film!

What is the best free software to convert these to 1mb per minute xvid or whatever codec is best?

Freemake video converter is the bomb, it converts almost every video format. I use it all the time, how ever it does create useless folders in your documents folder and c:\

You do have to have the codecs for the one you're converting from to the format you're converting to.
This package has them all. Just run it as is and don't make any changes to it.
CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack
Don't mind the splash page. It's just a humorous poke at the letters in the name of the program.
