Mpeg problem

Hi

I've been given a cd-rom with a 60 minute mpeg file on it.

I need to edit this file down to 4x15 minute presentations.
I have to put these up on our site and they need to be viewable on media player and any other widely used viewer.

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced mpeg editor?
I have concerns that the 15 minute files are going to be huge and are going to take too long to download - is there any way around this? Can they be streamed so that they play without having to be downloaded by the person wishing to view the presentation? If so how can I do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Cheers

You don't mention if the audio is MPEG 2 or MPEG3..
if it is MPEG 2 you will be able to get the file size down considerably by
converting it to MPEG 3 (MP3)

see..

for a converter

to edit the MP3 there are several good-value tools here..

to stream the finished work..

The material is mpeg1 visual - don't know if that makes a difference.

Can I still edit it using a mp3 editor?

Thanks

you should be able to as Mpeg1 and MP3 are based on the same standard..
but that is not guaranteed..as it may depend on the editor you use..

convert to MP3 for much smaller file size..and edit the MP3.
isn't that what you are wanting to do..reduce the file size for streaming?
MP3 is the only way to go with audio at present.
