Canon S2 question

by brucester / May 24, 2006 2:42 AM PDT

I recently just bought my first digital camera (Canon S2) and I was wondering how do you go about e-mailing movies. I tried using Outlook Express, but everytime I hit send the computer rebooted so nothing was ever sent.

an email. You cannot simply send a movie file.

They are rarely emailed because any decent video file is far too large for email.

I did hit attach file and that's when it shut down. Is there any other way to send movie files?

Sending Video

Most videos are much too large to be sent by email.
Take a look at the file size of the video and you will likely find that it is over 10 megabytes.

The alternative is to upload your video to a website and then notify the person you want to see the video to go to that website.

I cannot recommend a host website but a Google search turned up these:

Remember if the person you want to see the the video only has a dial-up internet connection, they will probably be upset with you for posting such a large file.
