Movies on Typo3

We don't recommend that you upload movies directly to Typo3.  

Why?

  • Size limit.  Movies tend to be large files.  Often above the 50mb upload limit limit.  Which means that the webmaster will have to ftp the movie up to the server (which means you might have to wait for schedules to clear).
  • Not all formats are readily accessible to all users.  Many have asked to use MP4's which requires Quicktime to play, not all have (or want to have) Quicktime installed.
  • Unless you have embedded a movie in a webpage before, we'll have to do it for you (which means it will have to be scheduled and not immediately available).


An easy alternative is YouTube.  Find out more about using YouTube with Typo3Read YouTube's documentation.
