    I have a few videos I want to put on my web site but they are very large .mov files. I need an app that I can put in a target file size and it will automatically resize the video and decrease quality a little, the video needs to still look mostly good. If you know of any apps like the fore mentioned please let me know ASAP.

    --Thanks.

    There's no place to put in a target file size, like 20mb, that's what i need.

    true , but i do it the other way round .. if my original file is a 1500 k bit rate i will half it and hence half the size

    I use QT Pro and it really is great for what you're looking to do.

    As pointed out it does not have a target size file setting but you go get a feel for the estimated file size very quickly...especially if you keep to the same settings.

    What format are the videos in now, and how big are they? What format and how small do you want them to end up?
