And what settings?
I've been playing around with several quicktime settings, and I'm never satisfied with resolution or size. I'm not too familiar with the different compressions, or even how to stream. I've only recently even bothered to think about putting my reel online.

And having a 2.5 minute reel at only 320x240 take up 18 megs with Sorenson 3 compression, doesn't seem to be very economical. I've been bigger movies (rez wise) take up less space. What are some of the methods you people use for your online reel?

You have a few good QT options. With Sorenson 3, try setting the quality to best and then constraining the bitrate manually. You could also try the H264 compressor. It is light years ahead of other codecs, but some older systems can't process it fast enough. Get QT 7 Pro to play with H264. It works as well as other compressing programs, but it only costs like $30-40.
