    Trappers, COMPRESS THE MOVIE
    make the resolution way smaller.
    or upload it to YouTube.

    *Sighs*
    1.3mb for like 7 seconds.

    I'm having a quick play with the quality settings, but I'm uploading the movies at the same qual as the first one ... the largest one is 24Mb for about 1 minute ...

    I know how you feel trappers, the trade off between quality and size is always a conundrum!

    are there limits on allowed downloads ?

    I was ripping along at about 500+KB/s on two at a time when they became unavailable.

    They have all completed now though.
