    A friend of mine just purchased a GoPro (Hero 4 Silver)for his business (he's a ski instructor). We're trying to figure out how to compress a 3 or 4 minute video, small enough to be able to email to his clients. Right now a 2 minute is about 450 mb. Any suggestions?

    To compress a video of that size to an email size limit would make the quality terrible, can you not either upload to Youtube and email a link or upload to a service like Google drive and send a link

    Yes, create a youtube channel and upload the full version to that. It's algorithms are quite good at optimising bandwidth and quality. You can then make it private if you want and send links to your clients that way in an email.
