So, I got this neat little digital camera for Christmas, see .. and
I use Comcast (shaddap .. it's all I can get w/high speed out here), and when I tried to send the clip to relatives, it was refused by comcast because it exceeded their 10MB allowed.
I went looking around and I don't know what the best and user friendly (est) site is, so I ask the most knowledgeable and intelligent people on the planet ...
What's a good site I can use or create a page or something?
I do not, will not use facebook, messenger etc.
Appreciate any help.
Photobucket and/or Youtube for videos.
Never had a problem with either.
Free and easy.
Just 4 that come to mind that offer hosting and/or storage.
...not all you post on youtube has to be public
Thanx .. that should keep me out of my wife’s way for a while
Try YouTube or LiveLeak for vids...
Tinypic hasn’t given me many problems for political pics.. most others have deleted political pics they didn’t agree with..
I'd like to e-mail someone and have them click to go where a set of pictures or videos are.
I don't mind registering if it becomes a personalized site ... all I want is to be able to share photos and videos
Www.dropbox.com is a great site for sharing large files. I have used it for a while for sharing many types of files.
They refused the last vid I sent them ... said it violated their rules of good looks.
Apparently you’re responding to me because you thought I’d responded to you. I had not.
I also have a YouTube Account (via Google), like PhotoBucket, and can upload vids, with many other options, via that account.
make it a .wmv, the thing will shrink like a popping balloon, Ill guess right around a meg
How do I do that ?
Yes, Youtube. Check it out.
Comcast offers free Snapfish. Is that what you tried to post it too? Didn’t know there was a limit.
Never heard of it. /s
The 10mb+ size knarf reported got me thinking about YT, because they used to (how many years ago) have a 10MB limit.
Digital cameras tend to produce massively large videos and pix.
Dump them from your camera to your computer and resize them.
There are numerous (many free) video and pix resizing programs.
[political pics they didnt agree with...]
Recently I have found that to be true of photobucket. I need to switch to somewhere else to post my Photoshops.
My ancient 2006 Nokia 6060 "Clamshell" cellphone has squat vid options, but I noticed the YT Acct options, and they're not bad, in comparison to CC's draconian rules. There's a lot of YT stuff up there much bigger than 10mb.
I also have an ancient 2002 Kodak Easy-Share DX3900 Digital Camera, and it still works fine.
AVS Video Converter is a great program.
It’s not free, but it’s worth every cent.
You might want to consider opening a Dropbox account. It’s free and you get 2 GB storage. It’s in the cloud. I use it frequently. All you have to do is upload your file(s) to the Public directory and then you can send a link via email to whomever you want. They can then download your file to their PC or Smartphone, etc.
Like I posted before.. Tinypic usually doesn’t have (show) a bias .. only setback is that you have to type in a ‘Captcha Code’ .. but well worth it..
Most of the political pics I uploaded there 1-3 years ago are still there ;)
Thanks; I’ll look into Dropbox!
WinFF it’s free, easy
I know you said Free, but if you are wanting a site to share pics, video, and news with relatives in a non-public forum(briefly had a facebook acct. but closed it...no thanks), you can check out myfamily.com.
It costs $30/year. We have used it for both of our families and relatives for 12 years now and like it. It will convert large pics to viewable size for viewing on the site. No fuss, no muss. Also has calenders, news sharing,etc.
