I just tried to send a video on xtra mail and it said there was insufficient memory. how do I get around that? any ideas please?

How many MB was the video?

Rofl. That's FAR too large to email. Maybe 1/10Th of that size at most would be suitable.

nice_lady, Jun 20, 3:55pm
Email systems wont't carry files that big.

Upload it to YouTube and email the link

midnight42, Jun 20, 3:58pm
Damn! Is there any way I can condense it or something? It is a video with music on it, and I don"t particularly want to send the video, just the music. Is this possible, please?

midnight42, Jun 20, 4:08pm
It is a tune I wrote and it is my first try at writing music. I want to send it to a friend who has written some lyrics and maybe they will fit. My keyboard skills are not really good enough for me to put them on Youtube for everyone to see, I dont think. Thank you for your help though. You are indeed a Nice Lady.

You could split the music off the video ? Trust me anything is possible.

nice_lady, Jun 20, 4:20pm
You can also upload to youtube but set the viewing permissions to private and just send your friend a link.

What format is the video ?
Mp4 ?
Avi ?
What ?

What format is it in? If you can convert it to mp4 it will be very small in comparison. Also, if you rip the music off it and turn it into mp3 it will be audio only and much smaller again.

You can always revert back to olden times and either burn it to a cd or put it on a usb stick and send it to a physical address by good old snail mail

Upload to Youtube then rip out an mp3 using:

There's software that can do it but the above way works fine in a pinch.

Why not try setup a free dropbox or Box account?

nice_lady, Jun 20, 5:29pm
Theres certainly lots of options.

Download ffmpeg. It's run from the command line and to do what you want would be as simple as typing 'ffmpeg -i

midnight42, Jun 20, 9:38pm
Thanks, I did that and it worked ok.
