Huge file size (350MB) due to video - adjusting video compression did not help
Hi - I have a very small course, in which I've included 2 videos (one was 200MB and the other 140MB). I converted both files to MP4, which brought the collective total of approximately 60MB. I read the discussions and tried the fixes mentioned in similar posts; specifically, (1) deleting the large video file and replacing with MP4 version, saving as new file, close storyline, reopen new file. There was NO adjustment to the file size. (2) adjusting the compression in the video converter (Windows movie maker) to match the specifications in the more in-depth technical post on the similar problem, but with SCORM files. The end result was a reduced (but acceptable) quality video, and a reduction in file size by only 20MB.
What am I doing wrong? Theoretically, this course file should not exceed 80MBB in total. HELP!
Thanks in advance...Paula
