    75MB? No one, except those individuals on a T3 network (and then it's doubtful) would ever sit and wait for that to buffer out. Additionally, you'll kill any band width on your website and over utilize other processes in a shared hosting environment.

    You need to optimize the heck out of that video before posting.

    how does file size relate to minutes? WMV is a good format to try to get your file size down. you can easily get 30 minutes down to 20mb or with the right software, less.

    You have the right idea. Though, it might not be a total solution.

    Play Video File on My Website

    Hi,

    You can upload your video file to youtube (or other video sharing website)
    and insert embedded link into your website.

    For example, insert this code into your website:

    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/VyI5lTZOncI"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VyI5lTZOncI" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

    Enjoy,
