Common Support Questions:
How do I change the php max upload settings?
In Windows you would edit the php.ini file
Find something such as:
upload_max_filesize = 2M

And change the 2M limit to a higher value such as 30MB to allow a video size of 30mb
upload_max_filesize = 30M

Be sure to also restart your web server after you adjust the php settings for them to take affect.
There are a couple other factors that affect the download limit such as Apache and IIS time out settings as well

MIME types and IIS
IIS will only serve files that are in it's MIME database.
This example will show you how to add support for .flv files to IIS.

Open up IIS
Next, click on properties of the website that you want to add the MIME type to.
Then click on the HTTP Headers tab.
Now click on the MIME types button.
Click on the new button on the MIME types screen.
For the extension enter .flv and for the "MIME type" enter video/x-flv
Click ok and the mime type is now added and your webserver now supports flv videos.


To check if it is a mime type issue try to visit a url on your site that has a a video such as .flv and if it results in a 404 error then it probably is a MIME type issue.
