Big Problems Uploading Big Videos? Not with YouSendIt!
Video is arguably the fast-growing -- and now among the most popular -- media on the Internet. Sharing sites like YouTube, which is now considered the web’s second-largest search engine, are now go-to destinations for uploading and sharing video, while many companies are now focusing on the platform to deliver everything from company communications and training materials to sales pitches to prospective customers.
But while access to video and the ability to produce high-quality content has been made easier, many end users are running into problems when trying to share videos through traditional collaboration technologies like email and FTP.
Overall, the problem is that video file sizes are on the rise as the use of the medium -- as well as picture quality -- also increases. It can be difficult to upload videos over 100MB through traditional means. Some users find that transmissions fail, networks are bogged down and deadlines are missed when sharing video. Email and FTP place file size restrictions on information that is sent as an attachment or through FTP servers.
That’s not the case when users upload files using the YouSendIt cloud-based platform. Depending on the subscriptions, video files ranging from 2GB and 6GB all the way up to 30GB can be stored on YouSendIt’s secure servers. That makes it easier than ever for end users to share video.
No limit to videos that can be shared
Music videos are among the most popular being utilized by end users. From rock ’n’ roll to country and beyond, people want the ability to upload and share music video files. And because many professional videos are now shot in high-definition, file sizes continue to reach upward.
YouSendIt provides the most effective platform for users when uploading music videos. Files can be uploaded from either the web or a desktop, and download video links can be made available indefinitely or set to expire after seven days to save room in the cloud storage platform. That also gives you, the end user, the ultimate control over the videos you share - including who can open them and for how long they will be available.
What’s more, YouSendIt makes it quick and easy to upload your favorite video files in mere seconds. Whether you’re using a web browser, plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook and Yahoo Mail or YouSendIt’s desktop application, videos can be stored in the cloud and shared with co-workers, friends and others.
Sharing made simple
What’s the point of creating a high-quality video file if you’re not going to share it? With YouSendIt’s file sharing platform, videos can be sent to colleagues without them having to sign up. Email notifications will be sent alongside file transfers to ensure they receive the video you sent. All they need to do is click the link in the email message and follow the easy instructions on YouSendIt’s website. Shortly after, they’ll be able to access and use the video you sent.
Depending on your subscription, recipients can download videos from as few as 100 times and up to an unlimited number to ensure files are easy to access and enjoy.
Dealing with large groups is also simple, as single video files or whole folders can be sent in a single transfer. That was never before possible when using email attachments to collaborate, as the file size limits of most email clients made it impossible send more than one video file at a time.
