Compressing 1.72GB of SD video to host on the web

I have an hour of SD wedding footage, it is a .m4v and it is 1.72 GB. I want to get it small enough so that I can host it on Dropbox or a similar site so that my cousin the groom can download it and watch it. Is there a way to get it to him so that it doesn't lose quality? If not, getting it to him at all would be great. I have Compressor but have no idea how to use it.

I apologize if I'm repeating a thread but I could really use an answer specific to my circumstance as I am technologically incompetent. Thanks!

Easiest way is to create a data DVD. Put a blank DVD into your computer, wait it for it to show up on the desktop. Drag your video onto the disk, then double click on the disk and click burn in the upper right hand corner. When he receives the DVD, he puts it in his computer and drags the file off of it.

Here's a link to a YouTube tutorial:

Thanks for the response Eric. I had a feeling that'd be the only logical way to go about it. Funny how in my laziness, not wanting to have to physically mail anything, I just created a great deal more work for myself. Thanks again.

You're welcome. Yeah, sometimes old school snail mail is the way to go.

USB Jump drive. I always have 2 and 4 gig USB sticks around. Or the old DVD data disc....but be sure to pack in a non bendable envelope because the post office will snap it in half for sure!
