Many people practice making short videos whether for home or work uses. On average 5 min video takes up about 0.7 GB. None of the free e-mail hosts such as yahoo or hotmail allow sending files that big.
Maximum that some free e-mails let you send is about 25MB. It seems that the easiest way would be to copy your video file onto CD and send it by mail. The only hassle is that you have to go to the post office and pay for the transaction. Video file sharing could be done at home by Internet.
Here are a few ways to share video files:
There are several websites that allow sending big video files to any email address. The price ranges from $10 to $50 per month. Websites such as yousendit.com and sharefile.com let you send big files and offer services like secure storage, 24/7 customer service, and delivery tracking notifications. Before committing yourself to the paid websites, you should try their free trial-period first to see if you like services. Free trial-period is usually 30 days or 3 free transfer-downloads.
Some websites offer free video file sharing services. For example, 4shared.com offers free file sharing services. You can send large files up to 200MB. The unique feature of this website is that they allow sending multiple downloads at the same time. The basic structure of this site is that you upload your files to your 4shared.com account and they create file links. You include these links in your email. By clicking on the link, receivers can view and download your videos and photos.
