In Topic: How to convert a mp4 to send through email

27 August 2017 - 12:58 PM

First off, the problem isn't one of file format but the method of delivery.


STMP isn't really designed for large file size attachments, and most servers will reject files of over 25MB, with many relay servers rejecting file sizes of more than 20MB.


What you want to do is either compress the file and break it into multiple pieces that can be unzipped and reassembled at the other end, or use Dropbox or something similar to upload the file and allow the other user to download it from a private link if you don't have an FTP server to host files on. Converting the file to be less than 25MB will mean a drop in quality.
