1. Using Budgie-Tube .Com
A: Yes! Q: How many videos can I upload? A: It really depends on the sizes of the videos that you upload. A 60 second clip is about 6 mb, but the size of video also depends on the quality - with better quality you get bigger files. Though several video file formats are supported, we recommend that you use the Windows Media Encoder (*.wmv file format) to compress your videos - this is the best compromise between the size and quality of video prepared for web.

A: 800mb file.

The lists of your friends and people who call you their friends (you can watch their friends only videos) can be found on "My Account" and "My Friends" pages when you are logged in.
Q: What is a Budgie-Tube.Com Net or Budgie-Tube.Com Community?
A: Members invite friends and family to join their community. Those friends and family in turn invite their own friends and family.

You'll find that the Ocean is smaller than you think because you are connected to more people than you think.

Q: What capturing software do you recommend?
A: There are series of software that can be used for capturing. Some of them are supplied by video camera manufacturers. Of course, it is always better to use software made especially for your type of camera, although we recommend that the beginners use VirtualDub software if there's no capturing software supplied by manufacturer. The program is easy to download and install, and you don't need to spend much time adjusting it.
