Hi Peter,
thats interesting. Right now, I pack the 20000 video files (total 8 GB) in
10 zip files on DVD and store them when installing in a users choice
location on HD. I would have never thought it would be a good idea to create
one big  8GB app bundle. Do you think this would be a good idea? Wouldn't
this affect the loading time and memory requirement of the app? I always
thought that if you start an app, the whole bundle is loaded into memory.

Hi Tiemo,

Don't forget that .DMG files are already compressed.  I would normally
recommend simply shipping your 20000 videos as separate files within your
app bundle.
