emailing a large video clip

  MJS WARLORD 14:09 18 Feb 2018

ok so I have 2 problems.

Using twitter on my tablet I can share a photo but I want to share items on twitter using my pc , I have got twitter on my pc !

My first problem is that if I right click a video clip on my pc , share on twitter is not in the list of places to send it.

It looks like I will have to send the clip to my tablet and then share it to twitter from my tablet which leads me to my second problem....... I tried to email the clip via attachment to my tablet but a box came up saying my server cant handle such a single large file.

Best way is to upload it to One drive or dropbox and psot a link to it in twitter

We Transfer is another possibility

You can just login on the twitter web version and click the "add media" button, or am I missing something?

Vinny: Usually, file size is the problem for email

  Forum Editor 15:42 20 Feb 2018

Twitter supports a video file size of 512Mb, but there is a running time limit of up to 2 minutes 20 seconds.

Click the Tweet button.

Click Add media.

Choose the video file on your PC and click 'open'

Click on the edit button and trim the file running time to no more than the above-mentioned maximum.

Click 'Done' when you're finished with your edits.

Hello FE when you say click add media do you mean the camera symbol at bottom right , I clicked that and added a test photo but when I clicked the video clip I wanted to tweet it would not add it..... btw I set up a drop box account and uploaded the 60 second video clip to it but when I put in the tweet name it would not accept it , I also tried an email address that ended in but I kept getting told it was an invalid email address ?
