    Seeking Suggestions for Compressing I-Phone Video to E-Mail

    My wife just got iPhone4S and wants to e-mail friends some video she took. However, uncompressed file is 370 MB and e-mail won't go.  Maybe iPhone takes 1920X1080 video?  Is there an easy way to compress to much smaller size (maybe 384X216 or something) either within iPhone or using some free program if she downloads video to her Vista laptop?

    I expect with all the compressed video one sees on sites like You Tube (we don't download anything to You Tube) there must be some available methods that are easy to use to compress video.

    I've found that Handbrake is a very useful tool for this sort of task.  Best of all, it's free and seems to work very well with Apple related videos.

    MPEG Streamclip. A great piece of freeware.
