    Hi, I have seen people making a short video and posting them on Facebook or on Youtube. How do you do that? I have Macbook 2008 model currently (using my frinds).

    Sending MP4 over Mail program

    Ok, I managed to record a video using my cell phone and sent it over to my computer via Yahoo eMail account since my regular eMail account server was unable to send the Mp4 file. (The error msg said the file was too large for the server).

    "Cannot send message using the server Earthlink, your message has size 32.4 mb, which exceeds 28.0 mg maximum allowed by the server. Select a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your OUtbox until it can be delivered."

    I got this message after compressing the Video file to ZIP file. Solution ?

    The File (BEFORE compressing)
    MPEG-4 Movie
    24.1 MB
    Dimensions: 640 x 480
    Codecs: AMR Narrowband, MPEG-4 Video
    Duration 1:40
    Channel Count: 1
    Total bit rate: 1,946

    The file (AFTER compressing)
    Kind: ZIP archive
    Size: 23.7 mb on disk (24.844,419 bytes)

    SO, its under 28.0 mb, why did I still get the msg "your message has size 32.4 mb, which exceeds 28.0 mg maximum allowed by the server" ?
