I have a .MOV file that I need to embed on a private wiki-style website. The upload limit for files on this site is 2 MB, and the file(s) I need to share here get up to about 4 GB.
I've determined that there are probably a few options I have for making the video accessible:
I can covert the video to a much much lower quality and cut the video size to a more manageable level
I can upload the video to another website and embed the video
I can upload the video and then just post a link to it
I can post a link to the file on a shared drive
My goal for this is to just have a page where anyone with access to this private wiki-site can go and view the video with moderate picture and audio quality. I also need to make sure that the video is private, so it might not be the best option to upload to youtube.
Can someone advise me on the best (read:fastest & most effective) method for embedding a video on a website with the size restriction I'm facing?
Thanks in advance for your help!
