Ah hah! Finally managed to get the Cuzco Xmas vids published. I had to upload them to an empty, accessible directory, then set Gallery loose on them via URL add photos method. I assume this doesn’t use the php max_post_size value, because it is a pull rather than a push to the server.
The 3 vids are not super high quality, and I’m a bit shaky on them. They were taken from this camera, so no complaints. The sounds add a lot to the atmosphere that I felt was missing from the pictures. Though it is always tough to tell if the video is actually translating a small part of that experience, or just triggering my own memories.
