    1616 * Export in your video editing software's native format
    17  * Convert your file to the xvid format. For linux users, you can use [http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/download.html ffmpeg], Linux, Mac, or Windows users can download [http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html mplayer] and use the mencoder tool it provides. See [http://www.engagemedia.org/help/how-to-compress-video Engage Media tutorial] for details on the settings.

    1922 * Your web site should include a flash player ([http://flowplayer.org/ Flow Player] is a free software option).
