I've been working really hard trying to work this out but I'm not sure how to go about this. Basically I want to have 4 videos on my website that are only available on my website and don't show up in search engines or on other sites such as YouTube.
I tried to upload my finished .mov videos to YouTube, then made the videos private, whilst still embedding them on my webpage. Unfortunately this didn't work. I now realise that YouTube will only play private videos to those that are already logged into a YouTube a/c (regardless of whether the vid is embedded on a site elsewhere). So that is no good to me.
The next logical step was to try and simply upload my quicktime videos directly to my media library but I can't do that because the max I can upload is 8MB and each video is around 250mb.
I've read pages talking about increasing the upload space by using codes like this;
memory_limit = 250M
upload_max_filesize = 250M
post_max_size = 250M
file_uploads = On
....in the php file on server (I'm still not entirely sure how to do this though).
The other thing I have heard is that it is better to use an FTP client if I'm looking to upload files of that size (250mb). Is this true? If so what do you do about security?
I went on a hunt and found this page http://www.solostream.com/blog/tutorials/set-up-a-videoblog-part-deux-or-how-to-easily-add-quicktime-video-to-your-wordpress-site/
The link looks good, though I'm not sure if it is necessary to do what I want to do. It talks about using an FTL but doesn't quite explain how I go about setting it up.
Essentially I want to know what the best most efficient way is to setup videos for my wordpress website, that are only available on my site, without having to pay large sums of money?
Thanks in advance :)
