Re: what file format for video uploads?

yea, but when i save the video file i dont know which setting to chose. There is settings for pocket PC, local play back, video for broadband, and ect. Which one do i have to chose? They all are under the .WMV format.

And when i try to upload the video it doesnt work and this is what it says....
The file you uploaded was not an acceptable format.: tony_and_ron_flying_foamies_.MSWMM

Hit 'video for broadband'. Should get you decent results.

The MSWMM files are what windows movie maker uses. These cannot be 'played' as such becuase they retain raw data such as the position of transitions ect, rather than being a video file such as avi or wmv.
