  3. u get winrar at downloads.com or somewhere else, install it. then right click your file and select add to archive(with winrar)
    there select .rar file,best compression. and just look at other setting and see what u need.

    1.) download winrar from here

    2.) Install it.

    3.) Select your mpg file, right-click on it, and then click "Add to Archive"

    4.) Then click ok.

    5.) Now send the file to your friend.

    but your friend must aslo have winrar installed so he can 'uncompress' the file... and how much smaller can it make it? well it depends on a lot of factors.... you will definetly lose a few megs though...
