kaffeine digital TV recordings - smaller file sizes

I use kaffeine to watch & record digital TV and it's fantastic. Some things I'd like to keep and burn to DVD but the file sizes are quite large no matter which format you choose. Is there a way to shrink the file sizes further?

The main way of shrinking video file size is to reduce the display dimensions of the image - i.e. reduce the width and height. You can use ffmpeg to do this as well as re-encode the video.
