You’ve all been there. You’re working on a video project or maybe you captured a personal video moment, and you want to privately share it. The default reaction to sending a long video is to use social media (Youtube or Vimeo), or open your email client, and then the dreaded popup appears: Email attachments are too large.
Issues with sending videos online can drastically affect your productivity by having to look for different tools and then being put through excruciating upload speeds. Think about all that time wasted, which could be spent working on deliverable and meeting deadlines.
Sure you can upload your videos to Google Drive, iCloud or send them through WeTransfer, but you’ll be missing out on team collaborations features for seamless feedback rounds and quick approvals. So what can you do?
In this post, we’ll explain the benefits of using Picter for sending your large video files online to move your projects forward faster.
How to send long videos
Sending long videos made easy with Picter
You will never have to worry about how to send your long videos with your Picter account. Simply upload your videos to your Picter Workspace and your teammates will immediately have access to it.
Sending your video to people outside your team also could not be easier. All you need to do is create link for your project or video file by using one of the sharing options available to you. Once your sharing link is created, you can copy and paste it into any email, chat or SMS client for easy sharing.
The best part is that your recipients do not even need a Picter account to watch, markup, comment, and approve.

Watch long videos without downloading
Once you upload your video file, you watch your video immediately with Picter on your computer or mobile device.
This also works with your sharing links, your colleagues can stream large video files directly from Picter so there’s no need to waste time on uploading and downloading large files.
You’re in control after transferring videos
You are always in control with Picter. When transferring a file using sharing links, your collaborators can watch, comment, annotate and download the video. All the feedback is displayed in the file view on the right sidebar and also on the video for better context.
The original file remains the same and is not edited when feedback is submitted. Once the feedback and suggestions have been incorporated, you can mark the comments as done and upload a new version of the video file.
If you want to prevent downloads and hide previous comments, you can adjust the setting when creating your sharing link.
Frame accurate commenting
Working on something big? Whether it’s a documentary or a series of videos for social media, there will be a lot of back and forth before it finally gets released.
To speed up the post-production process and to simplify your creative reviews, use frame accurate comments to let others jump in with feedback on specific frames.
Say goodbye to out-of-context feedback and jumping between different apps.
