Upload them to youtube and send your friend the link to the uploaded videos.


I'd love to do that - she's stunning and the theme was unique - but dear friend has forbidden me. :)


You do not have to make an uploaded YouTube video public. You can make private and then allow access on a per person (email address) basis.

Thanks - but it's another level of techno-sorting.

Miss the days when you shot a video and handed someone a tape .... :P

Copy it to a USB memory stick and hand that over.

Or even a DVD ... you can get 5 empty DVDs for €3.50 and it gets even cheaper per DVD if you buy more. So if you want to give physical media you still can, and it is way easier and cheaper than a tape used to be.

:? Oracle burn a DVD? :lol:

You people just don’t seem to realize how inept she is with computers. She can’t even figure out AA batteries for crying out loud! :roll:

She urgently needs to take a “Windows fundamentals” course and then maybe follow that up with an “Ms Office essentials” course. There are free community programs available in some places offering basic computer courses. She should enquire.

That's not fair!

I used the AAs when the FLIP battery-pack didn't seem to be working - I would say, that was innovative!

As for using a USB or burning DVDs to hand-over to dear friend - fine and good, and I can do! But she was 200 miles away by then and wanted them instantly, not by post (snail-mail)! (Why don't people go away on honeymoons any more? )

What I meant by the *tape* business was that once you shot the videos, you took out the tape and handed it over -done - but with this, I would have needed to get a laptop out (at a wedding?) and sit there burning discs, or transferring to USBs?

Gawd you guys are really geeky if you go to weddings with laptops in tow! :P

I don’t believe you can successfully burn a CD/DVD unless you throw it in the fireplace Oracle! :lol:

For starters, there are several media types of CD’s and choosing the right one can make all the difference.

Once you get past that stage you then have several types of burning methods to choose from…

ie: audio, data, disk image, bootable, non-bootable, read-only, read/write, etc.

…so the probability that you’ve figured out all the above is zero!

You haven’t convinced me girl… I’ve been in the IT support industry too long and I know people.

Having said that I should also mention that you’re no different to 90% of the global population and that makes you NORMAL. :)

You can do the same with SD cards and most modern cameras support them... problem is that your Flip has just internal storage which kinda sucks for several different reasons. Today you can buy an 8GB SD card for under €5... so you could totally do the "tape business" if you prefer the "old school" ways of sharing!

Sotos, when you have teenage kids, you'll be in the same boat as me trying to make some use of the hundreds of short-lived techno things you have bought them in the last decade that they used for one event and then discarded.

I still have a dozen mp3/4/5(?) players, ipody, inano things etc hanging around that I can't make head or tail of on how to switch on and use but I'm NOT just going to throw them away!

Still using my single mp3 player - a 12 year old ipod mini first gen, myself. No plans to throw it away any time soon.

Hello lovely CF folk! :D

Sorry I seem to be only popping in to ask for help ... but it looks like you're all coping quite well solving the world's problems without me. :P

One more piece of help related to my stupid windows 10 required, pretty please, if you will ...

I'm trying to connect an external speaker to my laptop. It's a little mini thing that goes into the USB port. Although the laptop seems to recognise another speaker is there, it continues to use the (weak) internal laptop speaker and won't play through my new connected USB speaker.

Again, I'm sure it has something to do with overiding some stupid window's 10 dictatorship setting but I cannot fathom what it is.

Any ideas please before I return back to shop and plead ignorance ...
:oops: :)
