I am trying to compress one 48Mb PDF which consists of a lot of text (no images).
Unfortunately I am not able to find a way to do that :(.
I found one of online services (SmallPDF) and they managed to compress document from 48Mb to 4,8Mb without any issues.
Please find attached small project for this and also test document.
Btw. I have Windows 8.1 64bit with Visual Studio 2013 and example app is crashing as memory is exploding. 48Mb document used more than 1.2Gb and then application crashed.
Why so much memory is needed and why it crashed on 64bit computer?
Test document is planned under bin/debug folder.

I also included document compressed by SmallPDF (document name: SmallPDF.pdf)
