I recently bought a digital camera and have been trying to email some videos from it. I can get them from the camera to my pc just fine, however, when I try to attach them via email (yahoo and hotmail) it just kicks me off the internet?
Thanks

How big is the video? Anything over a couple of megabytes and you're going to have a problem. It's like trying to mail a Mack truck through the US Postal Service.

Most ISP's/web based email accounts restrict the size of email attachments. You'd be better off uploading the video to Rapidshare (or any file sharing site) which will give you the links to send to your recipient and they can then download it. If it's a large video, you can use WinRar to spit it up into manageable parts too.

The video itself is only about 45 seconds. Are these file sharing sites secure?

43MB isn't real big. You could send it in one file. But if the recipients are on dial up, it'll take awhile to download.

Uh, I guess they're as secure as anything on the web. You could encrypt your file for added protection. Millions use Rapidshare.

When you upload it, you will also be given a delete link. So after everybody gets it, you can then delete the file.

I didn't think it was that big, however, yahoo nor hotmail will allow me to send it. I will try rapid share. Thank you. :thumbsup:

I just went to rapidshare.com

Which upload do I use?
Cogent?
Level(3)?
Telia?

Thanks again

That choice is for uploading multiple files at one time. I don't use rapidshare enough to know if one server is faster than the other. So, if you've divided your video into parts, choose any one of them to add all the files at once for uploading, or use the default choice that already has a black mark in the circle by its name. You don't have to pick either of the three if you only have one file to upload. Just browse to it on you computer to insert it at rapidshare and click "upload".

After the file is uploaded, rapidshare will list the download link and the delete link for you. From there you can use rapidshare to email the link to whomever...or you can copy and paste the link(s) into your own email program and send it to them.
