The video you took is most likely mpeg2 or mpeg4, therefor it is already highly compressed. When you zipped it, that is probably about as small as you will be able to get it. What you could do (not really sure what you are trying to do here), is try splitting the file into two. Then you would have two smaller files, each of which would be under your desired file size.

Other than splitting the file into 2 or more parts, you could try re-encodeing the file using a more agressive (lower quality) setting, or even into different file formats (ie: MPEG1).

Many tools for doing this can be found on the www.doom9.org site. Look under the downloads section.

If the only problem is an e-mail limitation, use a free service designed to help you transfer large files.

http://www.yousendit.com and http://www.dropload.com are popular choices.

They allow you to upload a file, enter the e-mail address for the person you're sending it to, and they'll send an e-mail out with a download link (they store the file on their server).

That way, you get around any size limitations imposed by your e-mail.
