I've never had a lot of luck dropping the frame rate for something that 
large.  It won't hurt to try.  If this is a screencast have you made 
sure the other person's monitor runs at that resolution?  I'm sure it 
does, but I'd had to have you drop the frame rate and still have the 
image too big for their screen.
