Posted:OK, I'm getting irate now.. just came back from kung fu with bruises all over from conditioning, and I can't post my vid and I don't know why!!!
I have:
a) a spymac account i.e webspace
b)an ftp program I have used to upload the video i.e CuteFtp
c)I can see the file with CuteFtp but cannot access it via the internet. I compressed it reduce it to a mere 49megs with winzip.
But seemingly this is not in existence. What am I doing wrong? should I just post the .mov file? why can I see the file with the ftp programme and yet not access it normally? WHAT'S GOING ON?!?!?!? confused2 mad2

Posted:i use spymac. So do afew others. U need the secret BIG RED TICK to be able to use ur account, its usless to do anything till u got the tick...im just assuming u didnt get it cause my account is still working fine.

Read what i posted here. It may help, but getting the tick is real tricky. Im not sure Rev even believes that there is such a tick ubblol cause he was trying for days and eventually gave up. Even after he sent his videos there he couldn't see them either.

If u really cant get it, PM Klaymen. He's a1337 and he got me onto spymac.

Also cause its free, spymac goes down quite alot, like u can get the videos and next hr u cant, and an hr later u can again...its just the way it is ubbloco Beggers cant be.... wink

Posted:Dragon7> so which questions do you need to answer, is it like all the competitions and that, or is something else I don't know about this site?

Durbs> sorry couldn't find a graemlin for heavy sarcasm, i was feeling a little wry anyway.;) if you know of a way to massively reduce the size of QT files i'd be grateful if you could tell me.

It's true I said this. Spymac is just.. ERGH. Very user unfriendly, fill in all the personal details and stuff after clicking options top right. After this some things will get red ticks. Tell me if you see these ticks. You can also PM me or add me to msn krusty_klaymen@hotmail.com . Spymac is just frustrating is all :P.
