My video taped soccer games have about 3.3GB each.  I would like to share the files (unedited) with coaches and parents so they can edit themselves.

 

 

What would be the best way to share?

 

I could burn the file structure direct from the SDHC card to DVD,

I could make it available over the internet using a sharing service like VIMEO for example.  Do you know what file format will be download from Vimeo ?

Any service out there (paid or free) that would allow me to give a password to my friends to download the files?


iMovie '11

so copy the whole structure into a folder, share it via DropBox, GoogleDrive etc.

others can use their editors, players etc to watch&process the 'raws'.

 

.... but we talk of Gigs of bytes! = looong upload times.

my son's coach gets my un-edited recordings as single mov for his iPad on a usb-flashmem-stick, a day after the game.

I'm using the Turbo.264HD.app and Elgato's Turbo-stick, which allows to drag the raw mts into it; the app re-wraps and combines the diff. files.

The idea there is to send a movie file in a format that is easily edited.  You would not have to edit it;  Personallyl I use an Elgato TurboH264HD to make .mp4 files.  I'm sharing about 40 movies with family for Christmas.  They will be on DVD, Flash sticks, and my web site.

    I would give them something easier to edit than AVCHD.  You could share movies from imovie by using Share Movie.  Take a look at Pando.com.  It works well for sharing large files.

    Hello Bob, the idea is NOT to share movies(edited projects from Imovie) but to share files from the camera, that in my case is a CX190 from Sony.

    Have you tried to use the HANDBREAK? to perform the same job of Turbo264HD?  I like the idea that  could, after the game load the files to my computer on site, convert the files and put on a pen drive - parents could take to load into their computers and edit their kids/players best moments...any ideas?

    Karsten, in terms of speed, how long does it take to convert a whole football game to MP4 using Turbo264HD?  When using handbreak is very slow. My son's games are 40 min halves or a total of 80 min a game...the file size produced by my Sony 190 using the lowest HD level is 3GB.   The convertion part to MP4 from MTS and after that the upload to Vimeo is the main points that I am trying to solve,
