    Calling MHF pc guys -:thumb:

    How can I send a video file through email without having to use a different dropbox software--
    The person I am sending it too , is not a computer person and if she can`t just click and open a attachment , it wont happen.
    I can send it as a attachment or as a zip file , but it still says too big (only 3 mins long)
    I used windows movie maker for it because I know her pc will play that file automatically.

    If it is too big it is too big!!! What format are you using?

    I would stick it up on you tube or vimeo and then email the link to her, this way all she need to do is click on the link ant it will play in her browser! :)

    I think you will have to use an FTP site. It is still very simple for the recipient as they get an email with a link in it. They simply click the link and the file will download.
    I have used this transfer site for several years - it's free for a single user account.

    I'm a fan of dropbox, so thumbs up from me, just send them the link via email, they click, they watch:thumb:

    For sending large files, we use www.mailbigfile.com
    It emails the recipient a link which they click on the download the file.
