After a few searches, I’m finding it difficult to locate file size limits on a general-purpose basis. Is 2GB what you are referring to?
Specifically, I want to publish mine and others’ works, both video and audio, and would like to NOT use embedded links from youtube and myspace video. I want to upload and contain these files directly on my DH account. I’m sure I’m not the first to do this, and that DH has specific rules regarding this type of media, considering the possibility of an ‘asplosion’ of popularity for a particular file.
I certainly do not intend to be a ‘youtube killer’ or anything of the sort, but what limits are defined for file size, numbers of such files, and general guidelines for this sort of site behavior?
One, more specific idea of mine is to create a local club and bar reference site, with vids of the action taking place at each. Rather than upload everything to youtube or similar site, then embedding it to my pages, can I just upload all the vids and link directly to them? What limits on size specifically are imposed? Will DH, at some point, start charging me for excessive load? If so, what point?
For now, my FTP tool is the one included within Dreamweaver, should that make a diff…
Thanks in advance.
