    You could try splitting the files and have people watch them in parts.

    Or Livy's idea might be more suitable...........either that or pay for one

    yep, splitting is the best option, otherwise you can zip it up or even reduce the quality of the movies to make them smaller.

    zipping will not really work because the avi, asf, or mov are already compressed format and they will not zip any smaller, best solution is to find another place to put them because most people will not want to watch them in separate parts.

    If you&#39;re limited to 1 MB per file then they&#39;d have to be some pretty short videos, but I think the best program for converting across multiple formats is EO Video. You can also get some good compression with Virtualdub, but your input format is limited to avi or mpeg.
