I'm looking to take a video I opened with VLC player and convert it to a URL so I can send it to people in my business. It is a video my company has made but is far superior to the one they have replaced it with. I was able to get this one off Utube and remove all the hype below the video with a Firefox plug in,  Now I can play the video but have no idea how to convert it to a url so I can send it out to my colleagues. It's in my downloads folder in Vista and I'm not used to Vista as I've been using XP for years. In fact, I can't even find a way to see the exact file name in Vista so I can save it somewhere I want in vista aside from the downloads folder I see no way to save it either.

 

I assume there's a simple way of saving an MP4 file like this one and then converting it to a URL but I don't have a clue how to do this.

I should have mentioned that I have been using xp on another computer and only starting using this computer that operates with Vista. It might have appeared that I had both operating systems on one computer but that's not the case.

a URL is an address on the internet, for a file stored on a server that is available externally.

 

Unless you run a server, you need to load the file somewhere so others can access it. File transfer sites are abundant these days. www.fileover.net is a great free one. It will generate a URL that you can forward to colleagues, after you load your file.

Did some browsing on your behalf and found this link. Hope it helps:

I'm new to BleepingComputer, a computer novice & hope this doesn't breach forum etiquette.
