A Dance with Monkeys

    I have an mpeg4 (.m4v) video that is 90 minutes in length.  Youtube won't post it, it is too long.  Any thoughts on how to get it online/free?

      What is the size of the file? 

       

      I found this.  I am not sure if the video is greater than 5GB.  Perhaps you can upload it to that site and then provide a link for others to view it?

        But that site won't allow streaming.

         

         

        What I would do is split it into 6 15-minute segments and upload each to youtube and create a youtube playlist.

          Good point robot house.  I was thinking, though, that he could open the account just for that video, then provide a link along with username and password.

            Yeah but are people going to want to wait to download a 90 minute m4v video?  It's probably at least 1GB in size.

              I don't want to break it up into components.

               

              This is finish line footage from a rinky dink race I just put on.  The idea is that folks would scroll to the segment they want to see.

                Open a blogger account.  See point 11.

                 

                mta: or wait and see if someone creates a blog dedicated to your race.  Then remind her that you set aside a pink monkey for her.

                  Put your own flash video player on the race's website and host the file yourself.  Here is an open source one:

                    I still need to convert to FLV for that.

                      Someone posted footage of the entire NYC marathon from one particular spot close to the end.  Obviously it was broken up into a lot of segments.  I did manage to find myself by looking at finishing times of the other runners at the beginning of the clips.  Kind of pain but fun to figure it all out -- yours would probably be a lot easier!

                        I don't think so.  It says it supports MP4 and FLV.  I am pretty sure MP4 and M4V are the same format, just a different extension name.

                            I haven't used this software, so I can't say how well it works.  Here is a link that seems to work for the download:

                            MTA:  I was just able to download it.  If you can't get it, I can email it to you.  It isn't very big.

                              I just tested it with an m4v file and it works.  I had to rename the m4v file to .mp4, but other than that I didn't convert it.  It was pretty easy to install and use.
