On Video Production: Compression

What you're seeing here is the output of our compression exercise.  We were able to compress this file in a 60:1 ratio, from 112.9 Mb to 16 Mb.  The original format is in .mov (quicktime) and then we converted it to its .mpg version.  

What I learned during this exercise was that there are so many ways of distributing video on the net, and that there are specific solutions for different intentions and contexts. We tried uploading this video in youtube... but somehow I can't find it there... So I just posted it here!
