This is where cloud storage such as Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive that you mentioned earlier is useful. You basically upload the video on the cloud and then the recipient gets a link where they can download the video. Some email clients can integrate this process. Here is how to do it with One Drive / Gmail:

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

Thanks Sotos - we've managed to send them with Dropbox now. She loves them!

All done and I've learned a lot now - thanks everyone! :D

I've been using MAC's for around five years now. I have a MAC mini and Macbook Pro 15" Retina atm. Though I am still putting together parts for a PC atm, so far I've bought

*Intel I7 6700K CPU
*16gb Crucial DDR4 Ram
*Samsung EVO 850 500GB SSD

I'm having trouble choosing a motherboard and case, atm I would prefer an mATX board/case. :?

Be careful with microATX cases because they might not fit everything you might need in the future. The parts you choose so far are pretty high end... now or in the future you might want to add some powerful video card in there and a the mATX could be a limiting factor. Keep in mind that no matter how powerful the CPU is, if you don't have a powerful video card to complement it then several applications, including games and anything that has to do with 3D, will be bottlenecked by the weak GPU. If all you wanted was a PC equivalent of your MAC mini in a cute little case, then you should have gone with an i5 and 8GB of RAM and save some money for the other parts.

Hi Sotos,

I was originally considering a mITX case/board and decided against it. I don't like full size towers, in reality I'm probably only going to add a good GFX and and possibly WLAN via a PCI slot. mAtX boards have around 2-3 PCI slots and upto 64GB of RAM (with DDR4).

Current parts I'm eyeing off are;

Phanteks enthoo evolv
http://www.phanteks.com/enthoo-evolv.html
Corsair RM750i
http://www.corsair.com/en-au/rmi-series-rm750i-750-watt-80-plus-gold-certified-fully-modular-psu
Noctua Cooler
http://noctua.at/en/nh-d9l

In regards to a graphics card, I think I'll wait a bit more. New cards from Nvidia are only a few months away.

The motherboard is the hardest choice atm.

I'm considering;

ASUS ROG Maximum GENE VII

and

MSI Mortar Z170

Looks good and the case is large for an mATX (larger than my ATX case in 2 out of 3 dimensions) so it should easily fit a large video card as well. But why exclude an ATX case? It will just be a bit deeper but it will allow you more options for the motherboard. For which motherboard I don't know... there is a big difference in the prices of your two options. Personally I always buy mid-rage motherboards (usually Asus) and I never had any problems. Maybe a higher end mb could get me a 0.2GHz additional overclock but I wouldn't pay an additional €100+ for that!

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.
