    Even when zipped, they can't be compressed THAT much. Just zip them and see what the new file size is.

    I can't believe you made such awesome tutorial videos and don't know how to use winzip

    Once you've installed it all you need to do is highlight the files you want in Windows, right click, and compress/zip with Winzip.

    Alrighty, do this:

    1. Open up Winzip (not a .zip file, just the program).
    2. Now click something like "New Zip" or something.
    3. Drag and drop the files needing to be zipped into Winzip.
    4. Save the zip files using "Save As..."

    Good luck.
