    Video specs

    I took a short video (17 seconds, 1920x1080x60p) of a native wild animal and tried to upload it but it wouldn't go.
    So I looked for the video specs required to see what I needed to do. Video specs can be quite a headache of course.
    I couldn't find anything anywhere.
    Can somebody please point me in the right direction?
    Thanks,
    Phil.

    Do you mean you tried to upload the file as an attachment in a post?

    If so then what error message did you get? - Eg: file too large; incorrect file type...?

    File size is still: maximum 400KB and 1200 pixels on a side. For a start, your video is
    already too wide dimensionally at 1920 pixels. It would be way bigger than 400KB.

    The general direction:
    Upload the original video to a hosting site like Flickr and then make a link to it in your
    post on AP. For this you would need the Flickr BB Code for the video.
    (As an aside, converting to WEBM also helps conserve your space on the hosting
    site you may have.)

    If you want to maintain the original quality of you video, then converting it to a smaller
    file format (compressing) will not help. Eg, if the video format is MP4 format, you can
    retain its size and quality AND reduce its file size by converting it to WEBM format.
    (Another aside, MP4 is not a default file type for vBulletin - the site software - but WEBM
    has been added to AP.)

    - - - Updated - - -

    PS: I just checked a video of mine:
    Length: 22 sec
    Format: MP4
    Size: 1920 x 1080p, 30 frames per second
    File size: 46.5 MB
    CC, Image editing OK.

    A second PS: About finding the video specs...

    If you're using Windows, hover the mouse over the icon for the file.
    Basic info will appear, like file size and date. For more info, Right-
    click the icon and select "Properties".

    If you're using Mac OS, "click" on the file (you figure out if L or R),
    then click on "Get info..."

    Well I imagine I tried to upload it as an attachment in a post.
    I tried about 3 times but it wouldn't go.
    I got no error message at all.
    I have never heard of WEBM format.
    I use Cyberkink Powerdirector 14 software to create different formats/sizes etc. Lots of options but having no specifications to aim at makes it hard to do.
    You lost me completely on the rest of your post. Sorry.

    Lost...?

    1) Well basically your files are way too large to be attachments in posts on AP.

    You will have to use another hosting site, like Flickr, which can handle such large files, and then make a
    link to the files in your post.

    2) And oDdlY, you are right about NOT getting an error message. I tried attaching two oversize
    video files and got nothing as well, but for an oversize image I got the message, so

    3) One slightly good thing about your Cyberlink 14 is that it can export in WEBM format.

    4) Have you found the size of your video file (video specs) yet - ie, file properties?

    Now, where else did you get lost?
