I have a 15 second .avi file from my digital picture camera but the file size is too big for what it is, 8.6MB.

Does anyone have software that will cut out the audio to reduce the file size? I don't have anything that will do it but I can't pay anything. It's just a short clip.

You might try Virtual Dub, it's a free programme that was recommended to me here....
A quick 'google' should help you find it. It is easy to use.
Good luck :)

You don't have to remove the audio (if you don't want to) to get a smaller video file size. Just compress the avi file to mpeg (using TMPGEnc) or wmv (using Windows Media Encoder).

You can also use VirtualDub (as mentioned above) with a suitable encoder, like Pegasus MJPEG compressor installed.

I tried VirtualDub and when I just removed the audio it raised the file size up to 210MB, but then I tried compressing it with a divx filter and it cut it down to 1.4MB and it still looks good. Thanks for the help.

raised the file size up to 210MB

By default virtualdub outputs in raw avi. It's easier to edit and manipulate raw video.

Another trick you can use is reducing the output frames. For example, if your original video is 30fps you could tell virtualdub to output 20fps or even 15fps before compressing.
