[Hidden-tech] Need to drastically compress a video file

You can use HandBrake to do video transcoding and compression:

It might be easier to simply upload the video to YouTube though. In
QuickTime Player, Choose File > Share > YouTube, and enter some
information. It will compress/re-format the video as is necessary to
transmit to YouTube.

Alternatively, go to YouTube.com <http://youtube.com> and upload from there.

Be sure to select "unlisted" if you don't want the video to come up in
search results.

If it is uploading the full 2.6GB at 1 MB/sec, it should take about 45

My speaker demo is a 4-minute, 2.68 GB Quicktime video. I would love to
place it on my Amazon Author Central page, but it has to be 500 MB or
under. Is there an easy way for a non-techie like me with only basic tools
(iMovie and Adobe Premiere) to export a small enough version? I have very
poor skills in both those apps.

Alternatively, if anyone knows a way to link a Youtube instead of
uploading? I know I could divide it into five parts of under a minute, but
I think that would be really annoying for viewers. Apparently this is much
higher-res than earlier videos I've posted of about the same length.

Thanks, as always.
