I am using ntsc, 30 fps, and the avi codec, (saving on microsoft video 1). I have no problem wacthing my animations on my media player, or even saving them to disc, but when I e-mail them, as an attachment, the person recieving them can't get them to play, and sometimes they won't even open for them. Any suggestions?

Email is a bad way to send large files. Someone's ISP may be filtering them for size or content. They might have a funny mime type that keeps the receiver from opening them, he might not have a suitable player for that codec.

Thanks! but;

I guess I can do without e-mailing my finished projects to my sister, ( I think she's just feigning interest anyway! ), but what if I want to send one. or more, to a website like Blender, Blender Artist, You Tube, etc,. Do I need to save-send in a different format for each site, or is there a standard? Thanks again!
