Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. hi All, does anyone know if there are free hosting sites like youtube or live leak, that you can load files of about 170mb or about 20 minutes, it is so i can post a link on the forum of a short slide show that i have made.
    hope you can help bye for now jimmy
     
  2. Jimmy, Youtube allows for 2GB and 10 minutes, so why can't you compress your 170MB film inside of 10 minutes?

    If the original footage is an AVI file, that will be too long, so it will need to be converted to an MPEG4 and that should do the trick.

    I only mention it because I think you will get better global coverage using Youtube than any other site.
     
  3. HI how do i do that...
     
  4. THANK YOU :D :D
     
  5. I thought that was coming :D

    I use 3rd party dedicated video software which is fairly expensive, but there are free applications if you google "AVI to MP4 conversion"

    I have found this one for you as a start.
    AVI to MP4 Conversion
     
  6. For anyone interested in other filetype conversions you can't go wrong with Super from ERightSoft. It will convert virtually any filetype into another and is completely free.
     
  7. What's wrong with sites like Rapidshare or Megaupload?
     
  8. Probably nothing, but are they as popular as Youtube?
     
  9. Yes though not quite as obvious.
