Isn't there a feature in iMovie to save for .mac - maybe you can just upload them and then add a direct link to them in a blog?

i get an error as i wanna upload a decnt looking clip and it cracks the shits with the size of the videos. so i feel offering a link to the videos as a decent sized download would be the better route if i can work out how to do it using .mac.

Your best bet is to upload it with an FTP client ? or maybe drag it onto your idisk (I think you can still do that with your .mac?) and then put a link to the videos on your iweb. either in your blog or create an external link, then put the full link... ie

mac.com/myname/movie1.mov
