Has anyone been able to upload and embed an MP4 file? If so, how?!!

I'm trying to upload about a 40mb file using Link menu but the file does not upload. "Waiting for Class Creator". Is there a file size limit? Can you upload MP4 files?

I don't know of any reason that there should be a limit, but the last time we fiddled with this the limit seemed to be somewhere around 30MB.

The alternative is to upload the MP4 file to a YouTube account and link to that from a page on your web site.

What John said is true. I don't recall the exact amount, although somewhere in this forum I posted. 40MB is too large.

You can sometimes significantly reduce the size of an MP4 by using a video editor. I know mine shrink to at least 1/2.

YouTube is the easiest. You also don't need any special code to embed on page, other than what YouTube has.
