How to Share Large Video Files for Free

In today’s world we are constantly sharing photos and videos with one another. Sharing photos is a simple process and can be done through email or texting. If you’ve ever tried sharing a large video file you’ve probably noticed that it can be easier said than done. 

Video files can be considerably larger than other assets which can cause delays or prevent you from sending it all together. If you’ve run into this issue, you’ve probably asked, how can I share a large video file for free? There are several ways that you can share a large video file without having to pay for a service. You can use services that offer free tiers like:

  1. Dropbox 
  2. Google Drive
  3. Transfer Now

Dropbox offers 2GB and Google Drive offers 15GB of storage for free. TransferNow allows up to 5GB per transfer. Before using these solutions just confirm that these provide enough free storage for the video you are trying to share. 

If those options don’t work you can always try compressing your video to reduce the overall file size. If all else fails you can take the manual route and put it on a flash drive and share your large video file the old fashioned way.
