Compressing movie files
Hi, guys

I'm quite the novice with my Mac so I was just wondering if anyone could give me some guidelines on how to compress some .mov files as I have about 100GB of raw/unedited movies that no longer need to be on the Mac. Also, where would be best to store these files? Can they only be stored on DVD discs?

What do you want to compress them for? Off the top of my head I'd say try putting them all into one folder, right click on the folder and choose "Compress" to create a zip file. Depending on how big the file is, you can keep it on a dvd or an external hard drive.

you can encode them with handbrake so they take up less space.
