I volunteer for a nationwide organisation that raises money for charity, each area has been given a video camera to shoot social nights, cheque presentaions etc. I have been asked to do it for my area, once completed the videos are uploaded to the organisations website I can upload a maximum of 500Gb at one go, my query is: how long it that time wise? all help and advice appreciated

That is a very large file. Are you sure that the figure is correct. I make it about the content of 12 DVDs. Upload time will depend on the quality of your broadband connection. Anything up to 600 hours.

More like about 10 Blu-Ray Movies.

As for the OP question, that entirely depends on what format the Video is shot in.

If you have a broadband package that allows 1Mb upload then this is 0.125MB per second.

It would therefore take 500 / 0.125 = 4000 seconds = 67 minutes

sorry missed part of your question ßeta, the video will be mp4 but I can convert it using DVD Flick or DVD Fab
