Question

I need to compress a 660 mb .wmv file so I can upload it, and view it, on z-share, which means i need it to be under 100 mb. . is there a way to simply set a desired size for such a video and change it . . i know the quality will be be lower.. .

 

thanks

Not really. Most of the formats have an option under the custom encoding that you can adjust the data rate. If you do some math you can probably figure out how many MB it will take up based on how many minutes long the video is. Keep in mind, most formats (possibly all, but I didn't check) have the data rate in mega BITS per second. There are 8 bits in a byte.

 

Oh, and since your source file is WMV you need a plugin to support WMV files in Quicktime. The company is called flip 4 mac and they are the only folks that I know of that make the codec you need to convert WMV files to another format. Once you have their software working properly in Quicktime, Toast will be able to convert those files as well.
