Hello Eric -

You can use Compressor to create .mp4 files that are small enough to meet your 
needs.

I can provide you with a click-through for creating a custom setting that you 
can re-use in the future.
What version of Compressor and OS X are you using?

Also we can keep this off-list unless others want to learn this specific 
Compressor mojo …

Jessica
