I recently went skydiving and i have a video that I would like to host on my schools server. I already have the Windows media player code embedded into the website BUT the problem is the actual video.

The size of the video is 520mb, it is a 7min 34sec video. I need some help/thoughts/ideas on what I can do to compress this video to AT MOST 1mb. The original format of the video was a VBO extension. I was able to create a .mpg conversion of the video.

so bottom line is this:

I have a 520mb .mpg video that I am looking to put onto a website. I need information on the best way to do this, whether it be to embedd the actual player into the page or some other route. I also need to compress the video to 1mb or smaller.


thoughts?

Some information that would help us help you is, what is the size in pixels and the frame rate you are using now? The file size will be approx. proportional to the area in pixels and the frame rate, everything else being equal. Just off the top I don't think you will be able to compress it to one mb., more like ten or twenty would be realistic.
