It's in MP4 format off of a GoPro HD camera....ended up being 1.47 Gb in size and 17 min 28 sec in length....I transfered it onto the hard drive with the camera tethered via USB port (took 3.5 minutes), but one can also install it directly off of the SD card into computer SD port....it plays fantastic on BLR's laptop (windows 7 OS) thru Windows Media Player....beautiful picture....was told that GoPro recommends using vimeo.com, but their free hosting seems limited like Photobucket free version is also...500Mb, 1 HD upload per week etc....Let me ask you, what was the video taken on, then what was the program you used to get it from the source onto your computer?
Thanx DP....YouTube sounds to be the best option for this vid....may take you up on that offer if all else fails (just this once), but don't want to start you into the video uploading business as you wouldn't be able to post here as much then.......first I will load it onto an extra computer at home that I don't use much and let it burn all night - then see if I have any error messages the next AM.....testing and tuning time....LanceAhh ok so it was a direct file transfer vs importing it to your computer via Windows Media Player. The reason I asked is because you can usually import it onto your system with different resolutions, compression rates, ect.
To your point, HD video does use some space...you may not have a choice but to take the time to upload to YouTube.
One option, not that it is better is I could give you access to upload it to my FTP and then I could upload it to YouTube, my computer network runs 100% of the time, so I do not mind having it run in the background.
