Uploading an MP4 video clip?
« on: March 21, 2014, 10:01:02 AM »
How can I upload an MP4 video file? I can upload a link but I would prefer to upload the actual clip.

Unfortunately Ken, I don't think you can. The upload maximum size and post size would need to be increased. It is a huge resource hog and might create timeouts. The forum isn't set up for direct video sharing. Also, it is PHP based and isn't designed for streaming.

So, the best way is to post it in vimeo or YouTube and then share the link. If you copy and paste the link, the actual video shows up in the message, not just the link. That is how I share all of my videos.

I hope that helps. Sorry for the inconvenience.  :)

Thanks, Erica. That's what I wanted to know.
I'll do as you suggest.
