    I took a quicktime encoded video-9 megs and exported the same size to mpeg4 and got one 104 meg file. I thought that I would get a much smaller file- any answers?

    Re: mpeg4

    2 issues here.

    MPEG4 is simply a codec and can create as large or small a file as you want. It depends on the bitrate.

    Second, you are compressing a previously compressed file. The quicktime you have you are converting to an MPEG4. You'll get better results if you start with the raw data.
