    Hi,

    I use a mac computer. I was give a 200mb dat video file which I need to compress/convert/edit into something that can be used on the web.

    I'll take a look at it, but the file on your server is only 106MB

    Default sorry 100mb mpg? was a dat

    Hi,

    I'm sorry I don't know what I need. It was pretty late when I posted the last email. I did manage to "change" the dat file to mpg but only by saving as in quicktime which reduced the file size by 100mb.

    I have tried to compress both these mpg and dat files using compressor and imovie but each time it spends about an hour doing it to fail in the end.

    Do you think the program you suggested can do it?

    All the best,

    Sascha

    If you follow the link in my above post you'll see that I have compressed your video to 25MB and embedded it in a webpage

    As a mac user, download and install iMovie (free download) from http://www.download.com/iMovie/3000-2200-10286246.html

    iMovie doesn't support mpeg, so u'll have to conver to DV first with something like Diva (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/17899) or dropdv (www.dropdv.com)

    You can import your video, edit it, and then export to web!

    I would be happy to split up the video for you if you like...
