Very often, when recording a video, one does not notice the size that the video reaches. A very heavy video in terms of GB turns out to be difficult to transfer or send. Despite this, there are specific methods to be able to share the multimedia content of your interest, although the dimensions are not exactly small. To help you understand how to do it, in this article we will show you how to send too big and heavy videos.
Large videos can also be sent via email. Although the main e-mail services have limits for sending files (Gmail 25MB, Yahoo 25MB, Outlook.com 34 MB), this problem can be bypassed by compressing the video of your interest. Just press the right mouse button, then select the item Send to: Compressed folder. In addition, you can also use special programs for compressing videos. Finally, on the Web, there are several sites that allow you to send large files through e-mail; one of these is certainly WeTransfer, which allows you to send files up to 2GB in size.
Another method of sending large videos is to use Cloud storage services. One of them is Google Drive, which allows sending files up to 15 GB (which is currently also the space limit made available for a free account). In addition to this, you can also use other Cloud services such as Dropbox (max 2 GB), OneDrive (max 5 GB) and pCloud.

Very quick, and at the same time efficient for sending large videos, it is the use of special messaging apps. In fact, the latter allow you to send even large files. Among these, Telegram is the one that can most help you; this platform allows you to send large files up to 1.5GB.
On the Web there are several sites that allow you to upload videos, even large ones, and then make them visible to whoever you want. One of the most popular platforms in the world that allows you to do this is YouTube. On the now famous site you can in fact upload large videos up to 128 GB or 12 hours in length; moreover, these videos can be published both privately and publicly. The steps to follow to do this are very simple:
- Log in to your account and tap on the video recorder icon;
- At this point drag the video to upload from a Windows folder on the YouTube window;
- Once uploaded, you will need to title the video, then scroll down and find the option that makes the video private.
- Once this is done, in the list of uploaded videos you can open the video and, by clicking on the options button, you can share it privately with someone by sending the viewing link via email.
Through your Google account you can send a video by uploading it to Google Photos. Each video that you upload to your Google Photos space will remain private until it is shared through links to send to the people of your interest. You will have a maximum limit of 10 GB, which will therefore allow you to upload any type of video.
