Windows 7: looking for a way to send video thu emails

looking for a way to send video thu emails

Hello everyone,

I am looking for an easy way to send videos thru email.

I have a 60BG movie i made quickly with my dash cam and wish to send it thru email, but it seems to large to go.

I tried uploading it to YouTube so I could just offer a link, but it seemed to take forever and it never did upload.

I tried using a compressed folder, but that did not work either.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I often send movie files via dropbox. The free version gets you 2GB storage. You upload the file to your public folder and mail the link. I usually split the file into smaller chunks with winrar for reassembly at the other end. Not sure what you mean by 60BG movie - if you mean 60GB, then compress the file (mp4 etc).

In any case you'll have to upload it to somewhere. 60GB will take a certain amount of time depending on your line speed. Youtube is usually relatively fast but it also depends on the filetype. I think .avi is slow. .mp4 or .flv are better suited, but with .flv you lose some quality.

Other good options are dropbox as jed said or Skydrive.

I was kinda hoping '60GB' was a typo - 2 hours of HDTV is a fraction of that. YouTube have a time limit - I think its 15 minutes max per clip. They also chew your movie ie lower the quality.

I'm not sure how DropBox works with Yahoo mail, but I have the app installed and just drop a file into the Dropbox folder and it uploads fairly quickly. You've got to consider what your upload speed is. I'm on fiber so I get around 5-10 Mbps uploading to DropBox. Your 60MB file would transfer in 1-2 minutes for me. If you are on adsl with low download speed of say 5Mbps, the up speed would be about 0.5 and that file could take anything up to 15+ minutes to upload.

since 1 byte = 8 bits, the math is

60MB = 480 Mbits
if upload speed is 0.5Mbps -
number of seconds = 480/0.5 = 960 secs = 16 mins minimum

Yea, I guess drop box would be the way to go for me. Seems like the best solution. On my Yahoo, when I click on the paperclip icon to attach a file drop box is an option I can choose to select if I have a large file. I tried this, but it never finished loading the video, so maybe i am doing something wrong but am not sure what.

Wow! 60GB. That's huge. You will not be able to send it via email as the free mail servers do have size limit whereas online file sharing services have the same limitations.

The file is 60MB not 60GB. That's not big for a movie file. Perhaps if MetalMan228 gave his internet speed that would help. Try this;
Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test
When it finishes the test, click "Share" then copy and paste into the Attachment Manager and post here! It will look like this:

OK, I did some research and supposedly dropbox is now integrated with yahoo mail, but it does not seem to be working properly.

I am posting a screenshot of what dropbox is doing (or not doing) on my PC.

Then I went and downloaded dropbox from the web thinking that would help, but it still does not seem to be working. When i click on the dropbox icon it loads a dialog box that seems to spin continously but never does anything else.

I am looking for other dropbox user feedback as to what the &^%$ I am doing wrong.
