For videos you can use Miro video converter. It is an open source video converter and
allows you to convert videos in .webm and .ogv format by compressing. Normally 200-300 mb
files get compressed to less than 100 mb. I'm assuming your original videos being shot
in full HD (1920x1080) and are really heavy. You can convert the full HD videos to .webm
and check if they are coming down to less than 100 mb. If the converted .webm files are
still more than 100 mb which is not supported in WikiCommons then try reducing the file
resolution to these following:

I need to upload couple of videos in .ogv format to Commons.
Each clip will be around 4 to 10 mins.
Is there any resolution set for this?
What are the prescribed resolution, file size levels?
Any help link will be appreciated.
