    Sharing Vid in Elements 10

    robo_col

      Working with Elements 10, I have become quite proficient at burning part vid's to DVD and saving as files.  Now I want to send a part video (43mbs) as an Email link. I have tried to follow instuctions on the support files, but have failed miserably.

      Has anybody got a set of instuctions or suggestions that an old 'p%&#$' like me can understand?

          You say you're going to send an e-mail link. And that is definitely smarter than trying to send a video file, which can be too big to send by e-mail.

           

          First, where are you going to post your video? YouTube? Vimeo? Your own personal web site?

           

          Once you post it to a web site, you simply send a link to that web page.

           

          But it's hard to be more specific without knowing exactly where you plan to upload the file to.

            Hi Steve, Thanks for 'setting me straight'.  I have had issues lately with YouTube,Twitter etc. so I don't want to go there. How do I set up my own web site to be able to 'keep it in the family'.

              Well, first you have to buy web space. Yahoo sells lots of web space cheap. Then you buy a domain name (also very cheap) and put up your site.

               

              Although before you do, I recommend you check out http://Vimeo.com. I prefer it to YouTube. The video looks much cleaner, and you don't deal with nearly as many annoying ads and other junk.

                Hi Steve, I have spent alot of time 'going around the traps' checking out the pros and cons of all, sorry, shouldn't say all,--of the majority of options concerning web sites. I have come to the conclusion that I am a greenhorn concerning web posting etc. and I need to spend a lot more time on 'web education'. Thanks anyway for kick starting my brain into a new challenge. After donkeys years of photograpy ( my 1st camera at age 8, was an Agfa Box, complete with a 12shot X 120 contact film in it ) one tends to be 'in a comfort zone' and needs to upgrade.
