Compressing Size of Video Files

By BorgInva ·
My digital camaera (picture/video, not an actual video camera) takes MOV videos. The sizes are large, like 30-50M for a 1-2min video. Is there a FREE program that simply compresses the size of the file, without loosing so much quality?
It is an Olympus C-7000 camera. 5x Zoom. 30x digital zoom.

If a FREE program is not an option, let me know what program to buy will do it.

Oh, your answer is going to be rated no matter what.... and in your case, you are a WINNER! I found 2 programs to use and they seem simple enough. I am still using Quick Time 7PRO. Playing around with the settings it has but this seems to be with what I am going with, and keeping it in the MOV format is helpful for my web visitors.
Thanks. This site is going to be very useful in the near future for other projects.
