Afternoon chaps and chapesses

Can anybody recommend a (preferably free) service that lets you upload vids to the t'internet? i.e. something similar to fotopic that lets you upload video footage.

Apart from Google that is - my laptop doesn't like Google vids for some reason...

TIA

Thanks for the offer Matt. I'm actually after something that gives me my own domian name - like http://ticketman.'website'.com if you get my meaning.

Anybody know if Photobucket does that? Sorry I'm a pain - but I've discovered the video feature on my new camera - and I want to show off :D

Thanks for all your replies chaps - much appreciated.
For simplicity's sake I think I'm going to give PhotoBucket a try.

one more question - the file I want to upload is an almighty 140MB (:oops: ). How can I compress the file without losing too much quality?

TIA

Windows Movie Maker!
I use it all the time! Saves sending 50+MB vids to Sproggy and co, when I use that it compresses it to retain optimum quality while keeping the filesize down :)

As for where to get it.. it should be on your laptop anyway!

Also by passing the vid through Movie Maker, it will be saved in a format everyone else can view. That 140Mb file is in the Camera's recording format, and may not always work on other peoples machines.

What if someone is using Linux, never knew that you could watch WMV natively on Linux!

To be quite honest only a minority of people use non-standard operating systems (Such as linux or whatever that is). So I'm not about to change the way I do things for a small amount of people ;).

"the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few"
Is how I'd justify it ;):):)

50149, if what you say is correct, as Mac is virtually based on Linux, which holds 30% of the market share, and Linux and other OSs hold 6%... 36% is hardly a minority.

I never said it was "correct" did I?
And to be quite honest Tom I couldn't really care less! As far as I know, Windows is still what the majority of computers use so thats what I'm going to use. End of.

Anyway, Matt said "No but you can install a program to play wmv on linux" so if you want to view my videos and have a Mac/linux/whatever download that and be happy :roll:

If you are saying that 1 in 3 machines sold are Macs then you are way off the mark. And even if this was the case, by definition, 36% is still a minority.
