    Help Again - Attaching multimedia files

    Okay here we go again, I'm going to try and attach this really funny thing! No I can't do it, dammit the blond thing again, okay everyone it's an MP4 video thing that was emailed to me. I could copy it to my files so why can't I copy it onto here?

    Thanx

    If it's an mp4 video file it may be larger than the max file size limit on the forum attachment system. I'd suggest maybe upload it to a file hoting site like dropbox and post a link.

    Looking at the attachment manger, it doesn't even accept MP4 files

    I expect the thinking is that multimedia (such as video) is normally posted elsewhere (e.g. Youtube) and then linked to from within the post.

    I'm moving this thread to administrative issues to discuss possible solutions.
    Should we keep things the way they are, or should I investigate opening up multimedia storage?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Ooh, I didn't realise MP4 wasn't catered for whatsoever in the attachment system. Given the increasing internet speeds and the decreasing cost of storage/hosting it might be nice to start catering for avi/mkv/mp4 files for future. Not sure of the logistical and cost implications though.

    TBH for casual use I'd suggest a free Dropbox account would be fine although if you're a big mobile device user and you want to link everything maybe Google Drive would suit you better.

    I'm brunette until 8 in the evening when, if I'm home alone, I sometimes magically transform from Andrew to Andrea in front of my bedroom mirror. At that point I'm blonde for an hour or two.
