How to e-mail a video clip from WMP?

Hi guys, need some help please, as I have never done this before.

I have XP sp2 WMP 10. Broadband con through NTL.
I have downloaded a short video clip via a direct link to my WMP. The run time is 4mins 48 secs.
Although WMP tells me it does not recognise file extention it still plays ok.

I now need to pass this on either by e-mail or D/L to disc.
This appears on my 'all video' section as...news090205_dl.
I can find no way to do this direct from my WMP.
So I opened the containing folder and found three files on this....page title...003921DA

1)...football.wmz^^..263kb
2)...news090205_dl.asx^..277bytes
3)...news090205_dl.wmv..7.26MB

I have put then in a 'zip' file and copied to my 'docs' video section.

Now when I try to open the file, windows tell me it does not recognise the file type, needs to know what prog created it...etc.

I have tried the auto on-line search, but nothing found.

Any help on this would be most welcome as I have now run out of idea's.

yours hopefully.....Malc.

You don't!

Most ISPs have a 2MB cap on all email attachments, and then don't forget that not everyone has broadband. Downloading a 7MB email attachment could take 2-3 hours on dailup!

Do like everyone else, and host it on a website. You can run your own server, or pay someone else for the service, the choice is yours.

Thanks for your reply, but if Windows can not ID the file HOW do I put it on a web site? The same applies to D/L onto disc? Because I have and it will not play?

I thought the idea of putting it in a 'zip' file was to 'compress' to a lot smaller file?

Guess I will have to look elseware for some help on this matter, shame, I used to recomend this site to my friends.

Not really an answer t my post was it?

Later...Malc.
