I am so discouraged

    There's a 4Mb limit on photos and other files which is usually more than adequate. Videos take up far too much room so you need to upload them to YouTube and link them from there using the Web URL in the dialog box.

    I'm no defender of this Forum which is riddled with flaws and can be very frustrating but I don't think their restriction on file size is unreasonable. Scylla, for example, is regularly posting videos of Ospreys which are several minutes long and therefore are many 100's of megabytes in size. This would soon clog up the servers and the RSPB unlike Facebook and YouTube do not have unlimited resources. Most of us are only posting photos and 4Mb is fine for that. In fact I usually restrict mine to 1.5 Mb.

    It's really not a big issue to upload videos to YouTube and link them here. This is how it will appear.
