    Compression of .mov file for email transmission as attachment
    I'm working on a G5 OS 10.5.8 machine. I have an iMovie .mov file that is 807 MB that I need to compress for transmission to a large number of recipients as an email attachment, without significant loss of fidelity or clarity. People keep recommending DropBox, but isn't that just like iCloud, storing the file on the net for others to access. The crowd I'm sending this too will look at email attachments, but will not reliably go to any other site, like DropBox, iCloud, or even YouTube, to look at the video. Any suggestions?

    I can't think of any email service that will let you send or receive a file any where near that size. You're going to have to use an online service to host the file temporarily. Dropbox is a good idea since you can host files in folders that aren't publicly accessible. Once the file is uploaded, you can have Dropbox send an "invite" to the folder which will let the recipients download it.
