    Hello all,

    Here's my situation. I'm a High School teacher who records classes using Quicktime so students can go back and watch them on the internet. I record my screen and audio. Lectures usually last around 30 minutes and file sizes of videos usually come out to be 1.5 GB.

    Of course, I have to whittle that down. So, I run the video through iMovie and spit it out around 200 MB.

    That's not terrible but I would like to get it under 100 MB if possible. Not all students have really high speed internet. So, the smaller the better.

    Does anybody have any ideas on a program I could run the video through that would make the file even smaller? Or any suggestions on how to improve any of my routine?

    Thanks

    Smart Converter is free and can be downloaded from the Mac App Store as well.

    Just convert to a mobile format like iPhone.

    It's drag and drop!
