Compress big file into a small one (Windows - > Linux)

JoeBissJoeBiss Member

Hello,

I have a big video file around 700MB, but I cannot upload that. I'm using Windows, is there a way to compress the file to let's say 100MB, and upload it to my linux server and extract it there to real size so I can use remote desktop and upload it on youtube? is this possible?

Thank you everyone!

    I would use 7z.

    You can use it on both windows and linux. But if its a compressed codec of the video already you wont make it much smaller. There is a limit to compress something without losing quality.

    You should be able to zip them into cunks/parts of 100MB with apps like 7zip.

    +1 for chunks of 50 or 100

    • do not prepay > 1 year and check for reviews/support
    • only use monthly from a provider operating < 1 year 🍆

    You might try enabling resume support on your ftp server.
