I dowloaded a video off my camera. It was 50 minutes long. Which means it is 583 MB. I use yahoo mail and io.drop to attach large files. It will only let you attach 100 MB. I really need help figuring out what I need to do so I can either send through my email or some other alternative. I made the video for my boyfriend since he is in Iraq. He has a comp but when i converted to different file formats, he cant open them. Is there some way that I can put the video somewhere and be able to send him a link? But i would rather know which program that I can use to compress or convert to a certain file type so that I can send it through his email. I would really appreciate any help!!!...thanks


EDIT: Added Later

i am trying to let me army BF view the video I made but every site I use takes it off....does anyone know of a site that is free where i can download the vid and give him a link so he can view it?

A free program like 7zip should do the trick. It can break up files into a user designated size. Then once the recipient receives all the parts he can extract them back to their original form and view them.

Your best bet for the sake of privacy is probably yahoo. You would only have to break the file into 6 packages. 5 @ 100 MB and 1 @ 83. Standard email has a 10 MB limit.
There are free services that offer file sharing but you would still need to break it up. Not sure of their maximum size as it varies service to service.

I don`t know what operating system you use. Xp has a compression program built in but I have never used it so am unsure of it`s function(s). I`m guessing Vista and Win7 do as well.

I think what ThunderZ meant was that you should use 7zip to break the file into 6 separate files, then you send those 6 files as 6 separate yahoo email messages. Then your boyfriend can use 7zip to combine the 6 files back into one big file.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

It's free. You don't have to sign up.
Another one is this one: http://www.adrive.com/plans
Basic plan gives you private storage of 50GB.
From there, you can make any file public to share it with whoever you want.

Nope. Any file.
I've been using it for a while and it works fine.
