    Its been this way for forever with Video. You can't compress them (i.e. zip, stuff, rar, etc.). You'll have to encode the movie in a lower quality format.

    Leopard- Click+Control- select compress "name of file"----- this compresses said file

    Tiger- Click+control- select "create archive" to make a zip file.
