After downloading Elephant’s Dream, I found that my laptop was not quite capable of playing even the 1024 version. I discovered that mencoder can resize video.
mencoder elephants_dream_1024.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -vop scale=768:432 -oac copy -o output.avi
It was necessary to manually work out the new dimensions (768×432) so that the aspect ratio remained fixed.
