Trying to post a 20+MB video to my index page. Only the first frame posts, then times out. It "plays" for 30+ seconds on the web but never moves off the first frame. My hosting company says to increase connection time, but how do I do that? Do I do that in DW or in iPower?
Can we see a link to the page in question? Also is the video file on your server the same size as the file is locally? If the video is not the same size then it could be an issue with the upload. In that case I would recommend trying to upload the file again and click on Site-->Advanced-->FTP log before you do so we know the exact error. If the file size is the same it could be an issue with your embed and/or server.
Maybe your server is too slow. Try uploading your video to YouTube and when completed, copy YT's embed code & paste it into your web page.
The YouTube advantage is twofold: 1. YouTube carries the bandwidth for you. 2. YouTube uses dedicated streaming media servers that average people can't afford.
If it still times out, maybe you need a faster Internet connection.
