I have editted a video clip to 26 seconds and want to e-mail it to friends. It is 19 megs in the mpeg format. Which format should I save it to to get it to a manageable size with decent quality? Thanks.

 

The format will depend on the file size that your ISP will allow you to send in an e-mail. I know I cannot send files larger then 5mb with my ISP. Once you know that size you can select a format that will give the best quality and still stay within the size limit.

Let's say I want to get the file down to 5 mg. How can I know which format to use to get it to 5 mg?

Try the wmv format. In EMC 10 you should be able to go to File > Output As > Email.

 

Pick a WMV file Quality from the Drop Down, give it a name, browse to a folder to save it in, click Create Video File. Try the middle quality and maybe you can get it down close to what your individual email will accept. If you can get it to meet your size requirement in the highest quality, all the better. Remember though, that just because you can get it to a file size that your email will accept and send, doesn't mean that to whomever you send it will be able to receive it through their particular email provider.

 

An alternative would be to upload the file to one of the online video-sharing websites. Then you can send the recipients just the link to your video.

WMA worked well and even the best setting was a 6 mg file. Thanks to all.
