Notes & Tips

Make sure the recipient is happy to receive video email. Some people don't like it, especially if they have a slow connection.

Remember that not everyone has Windows Media Player installed. Some people may not be able to open your video. If not, ask them which format they prefer and see if you can accommodate them.

Keep videos short and try to keep the file size down by selecting low-quality video settings. many email accounts will reject attachments which are too large. Anything over 2MB is getting too big for simple video clips.
