why can't we upload mp4s?


Recommended Posts

Because they take up huge amounts of space, and if I limit the amount of space to something smaller like 50MB someone will just whinge about that, so it's easier just to disable video sharing. There are also some security concerns with them.

There are plenty of MP4 hosting (free) websites that you can embed on here, eg Vimeo.

Sorry should have clarified....not wanting to upload clips that last for loadsa minutes or porno stuff a la xyy man O.o......

there's some very entertaining stuff out there in the same vain as animated gifs......

so if you kept the limit to the same as other files ie 5.86mb methinks could add to the entertainment facture

ie could you just add mp4 to the 'accepted file types'???

I think @gibbon requested this before and it isn't possible to add *.mp4, I'd have to allow all videos.

I suppose I could allow all videos, but limit the size to say 2Mb, but then someone will want to upload a 50Mb video within about 10 minutes.

It's easier from a legal POV to just host videos on places like Vimeo and then place the link here (embed). The last thing I want is someone uploading an inflamatory 50Mb video of Bill Gates being raped by a Jew-demon. :CryBaby:

Didn't want to upload vids. Just wanted the ability to embed videos such as webm from other sources online.
