Sending a copy of a DVD less then 5 minutes is taking to long to send out in my e-mail to someone, why?
I have tried this and my e-mail is not going to the other person because it takes to long.
I am watching video tapes for a company that has about 30 or more stores and when I see something I use to just make a copy of the video tape of the incident and I'd mail this to them to view. Then I saw this Snagit and was sending still photos of the incident, but now I want to be able to send a video clip of the incident, but I can't seem to get it to go through to them by e-mail.

Hello Joyce,

It's true that attaching a video to an email often results in a poor experience. Video files tend to be so large that sometimes it's simply impossible, and not just impractical.

The key solution will be to host your video online somewhere, and then send your viewers a link to the video.

You could use something like YouTube, but I'd recommend setting up your free account with TechSmith. It's private and 100% under your control. Our content-hosting service is also integrated with all of our products so it's really convenient.

Watch this video at about the 0:30 mark to learn more:

A final word of warning. It sounds like you're probably sharing a larger video file in an AVI file format. This file type isn't very web-friendly, so just let your viewers know there will be a delay as the video downloads.

I hope this gets you going--let us know!
