Practical file sizes

Video files are typically much larger in file size than other common file types. An average video has 25 frames per second of unique motion image information, which can add up in size quickly especially.
This in turn can make it difficult to transfer your file on the web, or via email. However there are ways to make your files smaller and more manageable on the web.
