Trying to host Video / Winrar compression problem

i have a video i wanna send to someone, its is 1.3 GB uncompressed, i have researched all the best Winrar compression settings and when i compress it the file ends up being 1052MB which is slightly to big for my preferred host site (Megaupload) - its driving me crazy theres no alternative to MU available that hosts over 1o24MB for free without asking for bank details and all that personal stuff.

So i would be greatful if anyone could suggest how i can make the file scrape under the 1024MB size (i can't compress so its loses quality when expanded btw) or suggest a alternative host site to MU that works. So frustrating me ~ thanks inadvance for any help

You can try to convert the video to other formats. (Yes it will lose some quality). But there is no way other than this. Try 7-zip (But I don't think it can compress your video to less than 1.2 GB).

Try KGB Archiver to compress your video. Its worth a shot.

I think the conversion idea that Ravi suggested is your best bet. You did not say what filetype it is, but .flv will give you the smallest footprint. Try that with Format factory. And here is a little video tutorial how to use it:
