I'm a bit old fashioned (don't even own an iPod), but I'd like to get my reel at least on youtube. Their file limit is 100 mb. I have my reel on dvd, as well as on hard drive as a final cut movie at about 6 gig, and as quick time, which at 800 mb is really blocky and not useful for impressing anyone. Where do I begin?? Thanks.

Jon.

Time is a big factor - how long is your reel??

Can it be cut down to 2-5 minutes? Is it effects-heavy?

YouTube recommends using the DIVX codec when compressing your file. I've done it on mine and it compresses quite well and retains very good quality. In FCP, when converting to DIVX, it actually gives you a file size option (how big you want it to be), so I made mine around 90MB and 320 x240, and let it compress that way.

Hope it helps.
