    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.

Uploading Videos to Rapidshare

Aug 12, 2008

Hello all. Shot some videos with my new Canon S5 IS. Yesterday I successfully uploaded two videos to rapidshare. Total length combined was about 12:30.
Today I tried to upload another video to no avail. Tried to upload the same video to you tube. Does it matter if the file is a .dv .wmv or a .avi? I can't figure out where to look in my computer. However I did upload a very short video to my photobucket account. (.avi): It came from the same camera...shot the same day. No problem. All the videos come out of my camera in .avi. I'm really new at this, so maybe I screwed something up. I do notice that in Quicktime I cannot "save as". There is a pro icon in front of Save, save as, and when I click on it it says I have to get Quicktime pro. I am so confused.
Need some help....please
