My high school would like to have video annoucements every week, but we v=can not figure out a way to broadcast the video without th esystem crashing. The prinicpal thought that we could have the file sent out to each classroom but then it would need to be sent thought the disricts website and there isn't enough storage for that. Also my school is really old but in each classroom there is a smartboard that could be used to display the video. Does anyone know a solution?



Software/Hardware used:
Dell computers, smartboards

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Post the video on Hulu or something, and send out a link to the teachers. You could even embed the video in the email.

Imbedding the video in the email may not work if the size of the email is too big as a result. I agree with Mr Denny, posting or emailing a link to the video posted on a web site is your best bet.

    I agree with posting the content on an accessible web portal and sending the link only.

    Websites like hulu can't be used because that is blocked on the school network system.

    E-mail servers are fundamentally designed to send... e-mail. Not movies. Readable text. While it's true that e-mail clients have become capable of converting non-text files into a form of 'text' (MIME attachments, etc.), it is not a particularly good practice. For a variety of e-mail servers, it might not work at all; and you're not going to know ahead of time which ones won't at the recipients' ends. Other servers impose size restrictions on e-mail items even if they're capable of handling larger. A server that needs to send (or receive) a hundred large files has to balance against sending (receiving) ten thousand small e-mails in the same bandwidth. Sending singles can be bad enough. There are other networking protocols (e.g., FTP) that are designed and intended for transferring larger files. Server administrators aren't quite so disturbed by serving files through appropriate protocols. Posting it and sending a link is the best chance you've got. The school system doesn't have a site...?

    Vimeo would be another option.
