Help! Compression Problems! Anyone?!?!

Okay, here's my thing. I'm trying to make movies for YouTube and I have a director's account, but they WILL NOT allow me to upload vids more than 100MEGS.
Okay, well every time I export my lil dinky 3 min video from Adobe Premiere Pro, THE DANG THING IS ALWAYS LIKE 350MEGS er some crap!
I've tried every possible export solution ON Premiere, but no dice.
Sigh, is it really THAT wrong that I want to throw my computer out the freakin window???

How long is your video? What format are you trying to export to? If DV AVI will not cut it, you have to further compress it to some other format.

premier pro has compression for the web
go to file > export > adobe media encoder
under Format, chose Windows Media (for example)
pick a Preset that requires maybe streaming modem but you should be able to go higher... like 256K
you can make the frame width/height smaller to make the file size smaller
theres nothing wrong with lowering your frame rate. even 15fps works for the web.
average video bitrate could go lower at like 300
ignore the estimate file size on the bottom... it's usually way off
hope a combination of these things help
