I filmed a 2 minute...
I filmed a 2 minute video on a HP computer. It is mp4 and is 118mb. I have to attach it to a file which only accepts 10mb files. How can I do this? I've tried online converters but it does not reduce it far enough. Also it is not clear what to transfer it to, to create a significantly smaller size.

It is not going to be possible to make your video that small and still viewable. You will need to find another way to share it. How are you trying to send the file? Email?

Hi Ricky Thanks for your response. I have to attached the video to an online application form. J
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Hi I do not have to send it yet, I am waiting for another document before I can send it. I need to go online and complete the whole operation at the one time.

Does the application have a limit on file size because they don't want to accept long videos? If not, are you able to send it via email instead? There is a service called WeTransfer that allows you to attach files up to 2gb and send them in an email.

Another way you could do it is upload it as an unlisted video to YouTube, and give the YouTube link in the application.

Hi I'm not sure about the email. I can ask if there are other options. I've tried several different people about this. Before I thought I was just not asking the right people but now I realise it is not possible to do what I want. I will try these options. The youtube sounds like it would be the best option. Thanks J

You're welcome. If you have any follow-up questions, don’t hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service using the stars at the top of this page. Thank you, ***** ***** a great day!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
