I've got a file I want to upload on the forum, but it's 13.1 meg. Using the MPEG-4 option, I saved it as a .mov file. What's the best way to knock this down to size.

tHANX!

There's always Youtube, and you should be able to ZIP it up and upload it that way-- the file size limit should be higher for ZIP files.

I recomend vimeo, they are very moderate on the information you need to provide them, and as far as I know you can provide different formats for download.

other way is to reduce resolution size and fps

hope this helps

If you want to share the video file just post it to:

www.filesavr.com

They allow a huge file upload size.

The best way to make it smaller is, well, make it smaller. Just shrink the windowsize that automaticly makes a smaller filesize.

Yeah...I was thinking it was, but I couldn't remember. The zip file came out to just a little over 12 meg.

tHANX everyone for your ideas as well. I'll have to try to keep this info in my memory banks for future reference, which is going to be fun, since I suffer from short-term memory loss. 8/

remember h264 is your friend..most quicktime installs can play it fine. I've reduced a 8gb movie file to less than 100mb.

Is h264 readily available?

the codec is usually included with quicktime

I would recommend getting Quicktime Pro..then you can just use quicktime to export a movie directly from there.

Did you use keyframes when you exported the .mov?

Yeah...They were set to every frame. I could probably go to every 5th frame, but I was afraid that might make it too choppy.

That doesn't necessarily make it choppy. It all depends on the content. It's always best to try a few different setting to see how they affect quality and file size.

Setting it to every frame doesn't reduce filesize at all. Any video you find on the web will have keyframes of at least 6, I've done it as high as 240 and it looks fine.
