Q: Is this service really free? A: Yes, completely free. No strings attached. Q: How can I share my videos and link to them from my website? A: Get the embed code from under the video and put in on your website. Q: What kind of videos can I upload? A: You may upload any kind of personal video that you'd like to share with the world. We don't allow any nudity or violence and your video must be appropriate for all audiences.

However, this still leaves a lot of room for creativity!! Do you own a dog or a cat? Have you gone on vacationing in Mexico? Do you live in The Netherlands?

These are just some examples of the videos that our users are uploading. In the end, you know yourself best. What would you like to capture on video?
Q: How long can my video be? A: The time limit is currently set to 10 minutes! Q: What video file formats can I upload? A: VidLii accepts video files from most digital cameras and from cell phones in the .flv, .mp4, .wmv, .avi, .mov, .m4v, .mpg, .mpeg, .webm, .mov and .3gp file formats. Q: How can I improve my videos? A: We encourage you to edit your videos with software such as Windows MovieMaker (included with every Windows installation), or Apple iMovie. Using these programs you can easily edit your videos, add soundtracks, etc. Q: What is your policy on copyright infringement? A: VidLii respects the rights of copyright holders and publishers and is only accepting video uploads from persons who hold all necessary rights to the uploaded material. Our policy is to respond to any notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). If we receive a notice or otherwise have reason to believe that content you submitted infringes another party's copyright, your account may be terminated and the video removed from VidLii. Q: It keeps asking me to log in, what should I do? A: Make sure you have cookies enabled. Q: What are 'tags'? A: Tags are basically keywords that describe your videos. Like, if you have a surfing video, you might choose to tag it with 'surfing,' 'water' and 'waves.' Other users that enjoy watching surfing videos can then search for 'surfing' and your video will pop up in their search results. Q: How do I download videos? A: While we do not support downloading, you can save videos in your favorites folder for future viewing. Simply click the 'add to favorites' button that is shown below a video when its playing. Q: How do I remove a video? A: To remove one of your videos, simply go to the watch page of your video and click on the "delete video" link right under your video. Q: Is there a limit to how much I can upload? A: The only limit is 350MB per video. We don't have any limit for the number of videos you upload, and we don't foresee adding a ceiling anytime in the future. So, get crankin' and upload as many videos as you'd like - its more content for the VidLii community to enjoy! Q: Videos won't play, what's wrong? A: Please make sure you have the latest version on Flash installed and have an up to date web browser.
