    Dear Folks

    I've gone ahead and shot some video on my iPhone 5 .. Say 15 minutes and its already 4 gb or so !

    I need to compress this video and store it some place (that place to store is flexible !)

    How do I
    ===========
    Option A) compress and store in iPhone without loosing quality IF possible - like a zipped XL file that can be in zipped

    Or

    B) how do Move the vidoe file(s) to my windows xp laptop and delete from iPhone

    Or

    C) any other option .... Other than "...DO NOT shoot video ..." :)

    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Since you want the video transferred from you phone to Windows PC, just plug the phone into the USB and your camera roll becomes accessible as a flash drive. Drag the video to your desktop. I can't really help you with video compression, but it at least gets the video on your computer.

    Wow ! thanks for that idea !!

    I'm reading the handbrake site ...but can't figure out how to use it on an iPhone

    Probably you mean, move to win laptop and then use handbrake to compress ? or ?



    TIA

    Yeah, it won't work on your phone. You would have to import it to your computer first.

    You don't get something for nothing. If you want it to take less space then you need to decrease resolution, increase compression, etc. Whether or not you'll notice a change in quality is impossible for us to tell you. Try Handbrake's presets and see if you can tell any difference in quality.
