    Problems emailing your wii?

    There's a message size limit of 1.5 megs!

    That's why too large pictures won't send, and that's why I couldn't just now email myself a movie.


    Dammit!

    Good info. Source possibly? Did you send yourself a 1.4mb file and a 1.6mb file and the 1.6 didn't come through?

    Thanks for any info,

    All your vids need to be in the MJPEG file format. So even if you sent yourself a movie, it has to be that format for the Wii to read it. Ive loaded up about 300 megs of Music Videos and Pr0n and they all work.

    That isn't what we are talking about.

    This guy, even tho I explained to him why it wouldn't work in a different thread, tried to attach a whole movie to an email and send it to his wii.

    sorry, I should clarify:

    It's a ten second 2.7 meg clip of my friend beatboxing that I was sending, not a full length feature film. I know most of the people on here can be pretty dense at times, myself included, but I was more so interested in testing the feature at this time than in actually using it in any sort of functional way. That and seeing if you can indeed email yourself video clips. Why not? I got a mac with an iSight and I do it all the time.

    And, I know about the size limitation because when I tested emailing myself the video clip, I got an error message (which I didn't receive in the past from messages I'd sent which didnt arrive, although this was immediately after responding to the verification email so who *knows* what up wit dat?) telling me it bounced due to size limitations and burried in the message was the actual number of bytes the server would allow.

    So, as you can see, I'm neither a moron or stupid. I would have assumed it would go without saying I wouldn't be trying to email myself a 700 meg film. You know, where the wii has 512 megs of storage and all.

    And for the record, the transfer took under 5 minutes.
