I have (video wave 4) editing ware,and I can't figure out how to e mail video, captured from my mini dv camcorder. All help will be appreciated. Freinds say they can't open any e mails of the video's that we send them,and I can't even open them when I send them to myself.

They can probably open them, but the files are so large it just takes forever to open them. What are the sizes of the files you are trying to send and what format are they in?

Hiya

You can either use Winzip as follows:

WinZip® makes it easy to create Zip files that “span” multiple disks. This is useful if the files you are working with will not fit on one disk.

To make a Zip file that spans multiple disks, simply create a Zip file on a removable disk, then add files to the Zip as you normally would. If the disk fills during Add operation, you will be prompted for another disk. Simply insert the next disk and click the OK button.
Important: disk spanning is not available when adding files to an existing archive; it is only available while creating a new archive. Also note that you cannot add or remove files from a Zip file that spans disks. WinZip requires pre-formatted disks (you can format disks using My Computer or Windows Explorer).

Example:
To zip the files in your c:\data folder to a Zip file called A:\DATA.ZIP:

1. Start WinZip.
2. Drag and drop the c:\data folder from My Computer or Windows Explorer to the WinZip window.
3. In the Add dialog box, type the filename of the Zip file (A:\DATA.ZIP).
4. Click the Add button.

If more than one disk is needed, you will be prompted for additional disks.

Or, you can use a file splitter. This is what I have had expereince with myself. Go here and download MasterSplitter www.tomasoft.com

Install and allow the files .001 to be associated. It will ask do you want to. Then you can split it down to whatever size you want. maybe not the size of a floppy, but say, 10MB a split.

The other person, though, has to have Mastersplitter. Its easy to install and is pretty small

Anyway, all you have to do is get all the files in the same directory and you can rejoin.

Burn the files to CDs and send them to people. 110MB files are not suitable to share via e-mail.

You can if you split them. What happens is, you split the movie down to 10 parts, each 10 MB big. If thats still too large, split them to 1MB. If you're going via Outlook Express, you can change the size that can be accepted for files (their end).

Now, I haven't tried the Winzip way, but the Mastersplitter has worked well for two people I know of here. I can split programs, etc, join them and they work.

It may be a long winded way, but if you're really want them to be sent, you'll have to do this.

Do not send this via e-mail to anyone. I don't care how small you break that huge file down, you're still sending 110MB of data. The chances of any of your recipients having enough e-mail storage for that are slim to none. Yahoo! accounts only allow for a total of 10MB of e-mail. After the 10th file, your messages will probably get bounced and so will all of the other mail people are sending to that address.

If you manage to successfully send all that data, the recipient's e-mail box will likely get clogged and locked out. They'll have to call their ISP and possibly pay a charge to have the data burned to a CD, or the ISP will simply delete all the e-mail.

Do not send this file via e-mail. It is too large. It doesn't matter what file format it's in. It's too big. Period. It doesn't matter how much you split it up. The total amount of data is too large for e-mail. You need to burn it to a CD and physically send it to people through the mail.


Eddie, unless you have some personal experience with successfully e-mailing 110MB of data to several people, I think your advice, although well-intentioned, is not recommended. I have friends that work for ISPs and manage e-mail servers. What Magoo is trying to do is nearly impossible.

Hiya Max

Well, its just as newsgroups can allow over 200 MB's to be downloaded onto my Outlook, I assumed that this can be done. There are files, etc that are from just the one's person email account being sent out.
To get around this, though, he can send the first 10MB, let the person save to disk, delete the Inbox, email back to say he's ready and the next 10 can be sent.
Also, his Outbox will need to be deleted. I know this may turn out to be a long winded route, but it may work.

You can change the size of the Incoming mailsize as well, in Outlook.

Tools | Message Rules | Mail

In the Rule Description, there is a blue highlighted numer. Usually 1000KB. Click that and increase the number. Mine is set to 3000kb, as someone sent me a movie file that was 2MB. Apply and OK.

However, I do agree partly with you, as 100MB in an email is very large. Can you not do the CDR thing?

Eddie, it is your ISP that determines the size of a mailbox and it has nothing to do with Outlook. Newsgroups and email are two entirely different animals and why would they care if you download 200MB to YOUR hard drive. Max is right an email of that size should never be sent and splitting it isn't a viable option either because you would still have 100 one megabyte files sitting on your ISP's mail server and it would still take the same amount of time to download it. He needs to do something like FTP or an online storage place like freedrive, idrive or something similar, but at 110MB he would probably have to pay for that much storage.

If you both have ICQ I think a direct transfer might work, but would take foreve... burning this is the best way.

Thanks Rockn

I didn't fully realise the email thing. I know with mine I hardly accept anything over 6k, total opposite I know. Thanks for letting me know about this. And thanks to Max as well.

See Ya
