    yeah, stork , dreamjack, trakker and i made this "faubion farewell" movie. our junior high is called faubion and its the little graduation ceremony. we took clips from all over the year and put them 2 gether using adobe premiere 5.5. now the system were using 2 play it does not need it exported and were doing this 2 save space. its like 8 minutes long but its a HUGE file, we had 2 gigs open and it ran out of space pretty early. what do i do if i wanted 2 post this on the web? would it be possible? i know msn has a bunch of news u can watch online and stuff but im not sure how 2 do this cause ive nvr attempted it b 4 . i dont have the space but the school will host it if i find a way 2 do it. will it work 2 play on the internet or do i have 2 just let the person dload it? could u clue me in , thx from all of us.

    You basically got 3 main choices;
    A Quicktime movie - See Apple's website under Quicktime for info about streaming or embedding Quicktime movies.
    A Real Media File - Which I recommend
    You'll want to go to RealNetworks.com and find your free copy of RealProducer and the Real Production kit:

    A Windows Media file - Which I don't recommend
    but you can get the Windows Media Kit from Microsoft
    To do streaming with RealMedia files you will need to create a .ram file (no biggie, just read the documentation) RealProducer should bring your 2 gig file size way down as well, just choose a smaller bandwidth, such as 56 or 28.8
