AVVENU to DVD content for my friends

Draft post on sharing a FULL DVD -- can;t email it, BUT, I can make it available for a 'trickle download' off my HDD using AVVENU. In this case, ill only put up thw wmv format, but i'll know w/n I can share full DVD files.

Ever try to email a DVD file?!?!? Haaaahhh..... impossible. Here's a solution for SHARING a MOVIE. I can use AVVENU to allow a friend to download a DVD right off my hard drive at home.
Here is the cover art for the movie - called UPWIND - The Launch of Kiteboarding.

This movie was produced and freely distributed by RED BULL, who has been the sponsor of the "King of the Air" contest in maui ever since the contest began. The DVD covers the evolution of the sport, the equipment, and the riders from that vantage point, providing insight from people like Robby Naish, Shawn Richman, Flash Austin,and Susi Mai, among many others who were there, are there, and have been there from the beginning of the sport as we know it. I have fond memories of the first board I ever bought which was a Naish "Flash Austin signature model" so I'm putting that chapter of the DVD up for download. This particular chapter ends abruptly, so remember that - your file structure is fine...

I have 2 versions of that chapter (.wmv - 18M and DVD - 270M) available. 270M will take 40 minutes at 100kbps uplink speed. If you click windows media format you can download a file that will play on your PC in a standard media player. If you click DVD File you can download a DVD file. In either case, click on 'download' (upper right) and it will come down to your PC in a zip file. Unzip it to a new folder and you can either play it by opening windows media player and using "file, open". Enjoy!!

Many thanks
