How can we make large files such as 5GB or more
into a much smaller size ?
5GB -> 50 megabytes?
You can't. For any file type.

Compression amount depends on the type of file it is.
A text file will compress a lot.
A large jpg, only a little.
A video, depending on the type and how much resolution and frames you wish to throw away, somewhat.
 
We can't,nobody can.
The only way to reduce size is to find similarities in the file and group them together so they take up less space the less similarities the less compression.

You can turn a 50Gb video into a 50Mb video but the result would be a stamp sized video with no resolution.
