How To Send A Large Video Via Onedrive

OneDrive serves as an excellent platform for file sharing with other users, although at times, transferring sizable videos may present challenges. In this guide, we will demonstrate the straightforward steps to share big videos through OneDrive.

Step 1: Upload the Video to OneDrive

The first step is to upload the video to your OneDrive account. To do this, open OneDrive and click on the “Upload” button in the top right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Share the Video with Others

Once the video is uploaded, you can share it with others by clicking on the “Share” button. This will open a window where you can enter the email addresses of the people you want to share the video with.

Step 3: Set Permissions

After entering the email addresses, you can set permissions for the video. You can choose whether to allow others to edit or view only the video. Once you have set the permissions, click on the “Send” button.

Step 4: Wait for the Video to Upload

Depending on the size of the video and your internet connection speed, it may take some time for the video to upload. Once the upload is complete, you will receive a notification that the video has been shared successfully.

Step 5: Share the Link with Others

If you want to share the video with others who are not on your OneDrive account, you can generate a link to the video. To do this, click on the “Get a link” button and copy the link that appears in the box.

Step 6: Share the Link

Finally, share the link with others by pasting it into an email or messaging app. They will be able to view the video without needing a OneDrive account.
