Can anyone offer me some practical advice as to how to send home videos via e/mail and Face Book (around one to two minutes duration) without getting the standard AOL/Yahoo etc message " 25 MB attachment size exceeded"? I am using a Samsung PL120 pocket camera, 14.2 Mega Pixels.
Cannot find any reference to reducing the size of videos in the Forum - lots of advice for photographs though. Many thanks.

You could use a file share service like DropLR or similar.

Or you could compress the file more using an app like Handbrake. The more you compress, the more video quality you lose though. It is a tradeoff.
