Default emailing videos

Help, I am a brand new digital camera owner. I have a Canon PowerShot SD750. I am having a terrible time emailing the videos that I have downloaded off the camera. What am I doing wrong.

what does "terrible time" mean? are you sending really huge files via email?

the files could just be too big. or if you want. you can actually create an account with youtube.com, and load them onto there, and then send people the link. and they dont have to be public videos. you can make them all private.

Default Re: emailing videos

When I tried to email a video a message came up that read "only JPEG images can be sent by email". So I tried to use "export videos". I found out that I needed to install QuickTime first, but I couldn't install the latest version because I don't have win XP or Vista. So I tried to find an older version of QuickTime. I found and installed QuickTime 5 for win 2000, but I don't think it's a free download, so I won't be able to keep it. It didn't work anyway. I tried to send the video to myself, it sent but wouldn't let me play it.

try youtube or photobucket. photobucket can load videos. it takes a while. but all you have to do is copy and paste the link into the email.

Thanks.

If you're being told your mail provider doesn't support anything but JPEGs, you're going to have to use some alternative method of delivery. If your ISP gives you some web space, you could post it there for downloading. Or you can use one of the galleries, or there's always Yousendit.com. The thing to remember about e-mailing videos is that they're big, and they'll fill up/jam up the recipient's mailbox while transferring. For that reason, one of the other approaches is better.

Precisely why I have not even been tempted to have a purely video camera! I have made some .avi files with the S3, but only the very shortest ones are small enough to E-Mail. I can't see writing a DVD for Postal Mailing. I've asked a number of people I've seen taking 'movies' what the did with them. The usual answer has been 'watch 'em in the Winter'... Phooey...

I'll try QuickTime again. I ended up uninstalling it because I don't think it was a free download, something about the licence expires in 3 days? Thanx mkuriger.

Thanx Jon that's good to know.

283CID, I don't understand.
Do you mean that cameras should be for pictures and video cams should be for the movies, or that it's just to complicated to send videos through the mail.
Can you elaborate.
