Simple Tip: Send Big Files Easily

Have you ever needed to send big files like videos such as machinima or backup zips but they were too big to send on email or Skype? Or perhaps your intended recipient was not FTP savvy?

By far the easiest way to do this is with JustBeamIt.

All you do is drag and drop your file onto their website, click on ‘get link’, then give this link to the recipient.

Just Beam It

The other advantage of this is that it doesn’t store your file(s) on any cloud server, it’s using peer to peer transfer, so it goes directly from your computer to theirs. There are no logins to do, no passwords to remember, no apps to download or file space charges or limits. It just does the job.

If you have a large file (there is no file size limit) and you need it sent quick, then this service seems the most handy to use.

Our SL colleague, Chris Smith aka Shambles, was asked to speak at the first Ted Talk to be held in Thailand – knowing the type of presentation he wanted to give, he contacted Leon about helping to record and assemble the in-world portion.



Naturally, being TED fans already and with the success of previous Shambles collaborations (including the infamous ISI Mash-Up), it was fait accompli – almost ;-) With a preliminary script from Shambles in hand, we did a refresher recce (aka location scout state-side) to International Schools Island. Getting still photos to work out camera angles lead naturally to creating a storyboard for discussion. Using a range of web tools, pre-production information was securely shared thru several time zones prior to the actual shoot day. Knowing of the 18-minute “Ted commandment” for the final live presentation, it was a bit of a surprise that it took hours of recording machinima in Second Life with Shambles to get all the footage needed.

Naturally, working with Shambles always leads to impromptu tangents ;-p. With some judicious editing, we did get the Shambles footage assembled with time left for Chris to speak for the live portion in Bangkok conference. Chris also did a pre-record of his lines in order for us to get a full assembly.From his Bangkok hotel after the event, Chris happily shared with us the success of our TEDxBKK presentation!Check it out on Vimeo!OR Link to full screen HERE
