IPad: uploading Video

Post by rannamy » Mon Apr 30, 2018 12:26 pm

I’ve spent an hour searching how to upload videos and to no avail. Is the problem IOS related or just my weak brain? Any help would be awesome...
Thanks,
Randy

There is a limit on upload file size that probably will preclude just about any video.

Either post individual photos or maybe put your video on YouTube and share the link in a post.

Thanks Mark! I wonder what those limits are. Perhaps I can somehow link it to my Dropbox account “public” file.

Linking to Dropbox only works when the viewer already has a Dropbox account. :oops:

Anyone have any suggestions that work for them? Or maybe a pointer to where I can learn how to do this?

So the answer to this question is...NO YOU CAN’T! I’m sure it’s because of the cost of bandwidth and all, so what we need to do is create an account on another internet site, upload the video, pic, etc. to that site, copy and paste the associated link for said media into the body of your CCABC post and it “should” work.

Mark seems to be on to something here!

Any video's that I have done have simply been links to youtube. Give that a try. :D
