    A question on splitting a large video file (an AVI) into small clips

    I have created an AVI file of around 170Mb and want to email this to someone,
    Well of course this is too big so i will need to divide it into 20Mb chunks
    What is the best way to do this?
    I've tried for about 3 hours but keep having problems
    Rep for any help

    Without - should shrink an AVI file by about 10th when saved as .WMV

    quicktime pro - copy sections and save into smaller clips
