Default video via email

Does anyone know the best way to send small video clips via email? I've
figured out how to capture snapshots from selected video frames and send
them as regular pictures, but I'm in the dark concerning the video itself.
Can I do this without the recipient requiring any special software?

Default video via email

Hi John,

I'm no expert in this area, but streaming video could be done that would
be displayed in a message -- most people have Windows Media Player. It
would be important to know your recipient before doing this! Better
would be to provide a link to the video file. Video files cannot be
embedded in a message. In any case, the file would need to be stored on
the Web.

If you're interested in pursuing the idea there are newsgroups where
avid PC users hang out who could help. I could send you a link to one by
e-mail. It would not be appropriate to post it here.

This will stream a windows media file (.asf .wmv) from a web server when the
user clicks the play button on a virtual player embedded in the email. you
can place the file on any server, it is not generally a good idea to enable
the autostart parameter(below). there are similar scripts available for most
media types
PARAM NAME="autostart" VALUE="true"

Hi John,
http://www.azoocamail.com is good and totally web-based. You have to
sign in, but it's free and is a full-featured email program as well.
