file upload extensions - video files upload

Is it possible to upload any/some video files? I tried to add file extentions under the host settings but it didn't work. Wonder if if it's possible in dnn to upload any video files?

It is possible to upload files of any extension (as far as I know).  You might be hitting a file size constraint?  I've never tried uploading any really huge files - maybe someone else with comment about that?

Yes, you can upload video files.  I've uploaded them and used with
core modules as well as MediaGallery.  By default, DNN has a max
upload size of 8MB.  This setting is is the web.config.  If
you look for     <httpRuntime
useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="true" maxRequestLength="8192" />

Change the maxRequestLength to something larger.  The only other issue you may run into is a problem with IIS timing out.  I believe it defaults to around 2 minutes.  So depending on your connection speed, you may be limited there...

Hope this helps...

Hi thanks for the reply. My file size is around 10M. I uploaded even bigger files to the same server. I heard from somewhere that DNN does not support video file upload. I would like to confirm this and also would like to know if there is any alternatives.

As long as the file extension is listed in the "File Upload Extensions", you can upload it. The person that gave you that bit of 'mis-information' could not be more wrong. The file name/extension/mime-type is transparent to DNN.

Thanks for the help. I tested again and it worked. It is a file size issue. I am so glad that I don't have to worry about the file format!

How to get file extension of uploaded file
Heres a simlpe one. How do i get the file extension of an uploaded file or any file for that matter without using any of the substring or split functions. I thought File.PostedFile would contain a property like that but it was not to be. Thanks in advance. As far as I know, the only way to get the extension is to parse it out...out of curiosity, why do you not want to use any of the string methods for parsing?

File Upload
Hey I've got a fileUpload control on an aspx page that works fine for the accepted file type, .rpts, and brings up the correct error message for not allowed extensions such as .exes and .jpgs.
