    Default compressing movie videos

    I am compressing some short movies into a zip file. the movies are 40 MB and when I compress them they compress to 38MB. what am I doing incorrectly?
    The movies are recorded on a hard disc on the camera, I then load them on my harddrive. I right click on the movie and send to "compressed file"
    Can I make these smaller for email purposes?

    thanks for your help?

    Hi ceyermann

    If you're using the built in windows compression, you could try using winzip instead. That will compress the files smaller but not by much. Chances are you will have to split the email and send the files separately.
