  • File Uploads/Downloads

    Hi. Sorry if this is posted in wrong area.

    I need some information regarding file sizes in V-Bulletin. Basically, i will be using the software to distribute a pre-recorded (not copyright infringement) video file to several members. This is a one-off and will only happen every few months.

    I will need to distribute a file to approx 4 different users/locations. This will be done every hour for approx 8 hours. i.e. 32 transfers. The file size will be a 5 minute video so say approx 70mb??.

    What i need to know - seperate from my hosting company - what are the limitation on v bulletin. I.e. how big a file can be uploaded, how much can each user download per day?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    70MB is a large file to be storing as a post attachment. You will undoubtedly have problems with the upload. I recommend you upload it as a raw file via FTP. The post attachment system is meant more for small files... say 2MB or less.
