AVI File Compression

I have a really large AVI file, approximately 1.6 GB.  I used the Microsoft compression option on solidwork with a 50 frame per second and the avi file that it output was really large.


Has any one worked with a file this big and successfully compress it to a point where it can be used on a website for advertising.  I would like to embed this movie of the animation on company's website. 


Can any one explain how the XVID file compression software works.  Do I compress it after solidworks output the AVI file or is that an option that I will have as the compression format on solidworks configuration.  Has anybody ran into problems using this XVID with soidworks, would it crash solidworks or somthing.  Just want to be sure I don't create a bug in my solidworks software.
