Uploading a video.

Okay, I have this funny video of my friend trying to climb an old Victorian gutter with a few slings for pro and taking a little whipper, and decided the greater world of rc.knob should get to see it.
Problem is, I can;t seem to upload it. I'm not all technical with this kinda thing so I', hoping someone can help me.
When I fill out the thingy like I would a photo and hit upload, the orange thing comes up and it sez "uploading" for ages, but won't actually do anything. For absolutely ages.
Is the file too big? I think the vid is like 30s long.

More important info than length is the actual file size, and maybe what sort of internet connection you have.
The vids I uploaded were ~40MB each (....5min long?), so they did take a while. I had to reduce them in size to get them down to 40MB though. They were waaayyyy bigger originally, and there was no way I could've uploaded them.
If you need to reduce the size of your vid, check out VirtualDub (it's free, and can do a decent compression job).

okay, it's like 300 and something MB.
Where do I find this program you speak of?
I'm at work and running late so can't google or anything.

As far as how to actually reduce the size of your vid, you will probably need to do a bit of Googling based on whatever format it is currently.
As I am sure you saw, your goal needs to be: "(100MB max)(Only wmv, avi, mpg and mov allowed)"
For such a short vid, you should easily be able to get it down below 10MB, which should then be easily uploadable.
