Question for those that use Vimeo.

I see that you get 500 MB each week that you can upload videos with.

Question: How do you "condense" your videos file size to fit that requirement?? I find even my 3 minute videos are in the 800MB size. Am I doing something wrong when I save them?

I use Premiere Pro if that helps.
Thanks in advance!

I would suggest reading vimeo's recommendations for rendering the videos you upload, if you haven't already (somewhere in their help pages). I normally render mine as wmv or mp4, 720p, at 4mbps (sometimes 5mbps) via Vegas Pro 8.0. That usually works pretty well for me. One 4:35 (mp4, 720p, 5mbps) video I did came out to around 170mb.

What settings are you using when you render?

Use the adobe media encoder and export using the h.264 codec. Check out http://www.vimeo.com/help/compression for more info on the best encoding settings for vimeo.
