Hi all,

I have a question related to video's, I have some videos from the game I'm playing and want to upload them to my site, but it says I can't because there to big…I've tried upping the size allowed to 1000000, but is won't allow it, the video is about 70 meg….Plus how would I go about being able to add videos to the news section?

Thanks for any help

Paul..

Hi,

If there played with PHP its important to have enough memory available to play them. Also in php-info is a limit to see for uploading files so thats inportant too. Maybe they are to low?

Greetings Puran.

I guess you realize that a 70 mb video on your server, viewed by 10 people in 10 minutes will cost you 700MB of bandwidth in that short span and lead to gigabytes in just a few days, which is the quickest way to get you banned by a Hosting Provider, or trigger warning emails forcing you to upgrade your account. No one should really want to host large files of any kind on his server for some of these reasons, let alone the time and space logistics spent on backup nightmares.

There are free Photo and Video hosts, which will take care of storing those files for you, such as YouTube, Picassa, Photobucket and many others and all you have to do is linking to them on your site.;)
