resizing for streaming

This is a non-fanvid project: I have an 18-minute video at 720x480 that I want to resize to 360x240 for streaming from a private site. I ripped from vob to DivX avi using VirtualDubMod no problem and ended up with a ~315MB file, but when I tried it again and specified to save at 360x240, although it created the smaller video, the filesize was identical. Clearly, I'm doing something wrong - any suggestions? I want to have something small enough for reasonable streaming.

I have VirtualDubMod, Adobe Premiere Elements, and WMM.
