Sending Vidios

I'm wondering if anyone has an answer for me. I've been trying to figure out how to send a home video by email. I have a Kodak Easy Share digital camera, and I use Picasa for my photos. I have no trouble sending photos, but can't send videos. Is it possible to do this?....Maggie

Depends On The Size Of The File..

In reply to: Sending Vidios

With videos that are made by a Kodak Easy Share camera, the default file is a .mov file.. I've sent quite a few to friends but I don't use the Easy Share software.. Basically, if send the video file as a simple attachment in my e-mail. For some receivers, you may need to ZIP the file to get it past various e-mail program security setups.

Remember though, some of those videos can be fairly large and if you go over the attachment size limit for your ISP, the message won't send.

Hope this helps.

Attachment size limit?

In reply to: Depends On The Size Of The File..

How do I find out? Maybe I'll try a zip file. Hopefully that might work. These videos are very short(only about 4 or 5 minutes). Thanks for the help....Maggie

Most ISP's Have Limits On Attachment Size

In reply to: Attachment size limit?

Many have a 10 MB limit while some have as little as 1 or 2 MB limits. Videos can easily be larger than that. You'll need to check with your ISP. Usually the information can be found in the e-mail FAQ's for your ISP account at their website.

Hope this helps.

The Size Of The Movoe File..

In reply to: Depends On The Size Of The File..

Please not the size of the Movie file:

I have movie (with sound- A Song) recorded file, which works fine when I play on Widows Media Player & other.

Recorded time shows 5 Minues & 12 seconds.
And file size show its 20MB

So even if I Zip it , still I can not sent via email.

Sending large files

In reply to: The Size Of The Movoe File..

Not by email, but there are very simple ways of sending it. Savefile.com, YouSendIt.com, and SendThisFile.com are just some of the ways. I like Savefile because your file stays there untill it hasn't been accessed for 1 month.

20 MB Is Simply Too Large For E-mail..

In reply to: The Size Of The Movoe File..

You'll need to use one of the other methods mentioned by the others...which uploads the file to an online storage site and the receiver can then download it from their location.

Hope this helps.

Email attachments - too large

In reply to: 20 MB Is Simply Too Large For E-mail..

For those who won't take the time to go back and read my other posts which have the answer to sending large files, and insist on using email; you can "split" your file into 7MB parts and have the recipient re-assemble the parts when they receive them. Use MASTERSPLITTER to accomplish this.
Have fun.

Just sent something big. But not by email.

In reply to: Sending Vidios

I used a service called SENDTHISFILE (use google.com to find it.)

Seems fine.

Sending video by email

In reply to: Sending Vidios

Assuming you're using Outlook Express as your email client, (why would anyone use something else?) just open OE, click on the "Attach" button, navigate to your file's location and select it to attach. If the file is larger than 7MB, most servers won't handle it. They say they have a 10MB limit, but my experience is that they add about 2.5 - 3MB of junk to the message which takes you to the 10MB limit. If the file is larger than 7MB you might want to upload it to a free file share/transfer site like Savefile.com where you can upload files as large as 50MB and then send your chosen recipient the address so they can download that file from the Savefile location. Hope this helps.
