I'm trying to compress video files into a size that is more digestible to my clients. I'm using (web-based) PremierPro CC 2017 and I am working on a MacBook Pro. Everything I'm producing is beautiful, with regard to clarity but are 400mb to 700mb in size.
All of the tutorials online seem to address Microsoft Windows and tell you how to save to a .wmv file. This doesn't work for Mac users, it seems. I'm trying to get these below the average 20mb limit that most email systems require.
I know that I can send them easily with a transfer website, but my clients are looking to add them to their emails and not have the hassle of requiring that their recipients go through WeTransfer or Box or DropBox.
For all the reasons you describe (OS compatibility, file size hassles, and wanting to put the video in emails), I don't think you should deliver just video files to a client. Sure send them a moderate sized MP4 file if they want one but the primary delivery method should be via YouTube, iPlayerHD, or Vimeo. I doubt that most Realtors want or know how to deal with video, files. With just a link to a hosted video clients can do most of the things they want to do with video (embed it on sites, email it, and post it to social media sites).
There are big benefits to uploading it to YouTube for your clients. YouTube is the second largest search engine on the planet. If you put identifying keywords in the title and description (like the agent's name, website URL, address of the property, etc.), it gives huge search exposure to the property.
How do you deliver video to clients?
Update 10/23: As Fred Light points out in his comment below the iPlayerHD.com video hosting service has a feature that allows the video to be downloaded. This way the client get their choice to watch and/or download the video.
