    upload it to something like MediaFire and email the recipient a link to download your video

    Video doesnt not compress well with Zip. The audio and video inside of it is already compressed so that it isnt a huge file. You are better off hosting it up on some online storage place or disc sending it as mentioned above.

    I often use yousendit.com and send it to myself. Then you can forward out the link to whoever you want. That way the recipients can download it at their convenience, rather than having a giant attachment clog up their inboxes.
