Have a real neat one now of the Florence foredune that I think all may enjoy, but it's 17 minute, 1.6 Gb size.....where are we to host these types of videos....the HD format really increases their file size too.....my PB account only allows 10 minute, 500 Mb files....:unsure:.....Lance

Just went to my YouTube account and things got better, then worst....

The tube will accept videos of 2.0 Gb and 15 minutes long, that's the good news....bad news is I started to upload my 1.6 Gb./17 minute vid and was projected to take 600 minutes...........10 hours???.......No thanx.......have we any other options besides keeping them to a few minutes long??....Lance

Hmmm YouTube is likely your best bet...Not sure if it will actually take that long, however, 1.6 gigs is a pretty darn good file size, lol.
Time to learn more on editing these videos I guess.....and take shorter ones, of course...:) ....Lance

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?
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....

With the popularity of larger files from HD vids coming on, it seems that the hosts are going to be falling short.....that was the first one we shot to see if the camera worked, so from now on, guess we'll shoot more, smaller files....just a learning experience that bigger files become non-manageable to share with others....I will change the settings on the camera to take lesser-quality picture and run another 17 minute ride and see what the file size ends up being....just got to monkey with the settings and learn....

But bottom line, I recommend this GoPro HD camera kit to all.....plenty of options for mounting, waterproof, durable looking and a HD picture that no one will be dissappointed with....It's a top-end setup IMO......Lance

Ahh 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.

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....Lance
