Three hours. Wow! Normally an LMS delivers content that is consumed by the learner and a report is sent back to the LMS after they are quizzed. Normally this means videos that are vastly shorter than three hours.

You might try running the video through an application called Handbrake. That has been known to reduce the size of the videos. But even that may not be enough.

Honestly, you are likely going to need to break this into several smaller videos.

Oh, also, there's really no such thing as a simple SCORM file. (SCORM means Sharable Content Object Reference Model) It is a protocol that defines how communication is supposed to work with eLearning content and LMS' that deliver said content.

Cheers... Rick :)
