A few weeks ago I spent a weekend uploading uncompressed video files to the company that frequently sells my clips. All files are .mov files. I was told that a great many of them came in without the .mov and simply typing that in after the clip still failed to open the files. Next time I will put the folders in a zip file and see if that works but does anyone who may use File Zilla to upload uncompressed files have any insight into the cause for the .mov extension to be removed?

I have worked as an unpaid reviewer for the editing websites since 2002. Most all hardware and software is sent to me free of charge, however, in no way am I obligated to provide either positive or negative evaluations. Any suggestions I make regarding products are a result of my own, completely, personal opinions and experiences with said products.

FileZilla probably did not recognize the extension as a binary file and uploaded them as ascii files. Ensure that the ftp is set to binary mode when transferring the files.
