OKay its is two stages upload and then import using website. FTP or upload stage. sign up to archive for your login/pass (You should have already done this) get a FTP client program graphical or command line your choice commandline -use client to connect to movies-uploads.archive.org -login with your username and password from website -set binary mode (IMPORTANT do not skip or file will be trash on remote server) bin -make a directory mkdir myfile -change directories cd myfile - change local directory to where file is contained) lcd /mystoragedir -put file put myfile.mp4 -exit quit Note: if you want to run a local command prefix it with ! example !dir I wrote a small shell script to do this as a batch process for many files in linux. posting in case anyone might possibly find useful. if I have several quicktime files in a directory usage would be ls *.mov | xargs -l ftpup of course script must be in your path. Also you must replace username and password in script with the correct values for your situation. contents of ftpup script ------------------------------------- part=`echo $1 | cut -f1 -d"."` ext=`echo $1 | cut -f2 -d"."` cat >> ftp_commands << EOF bin mkdir $part cd $part put $part.$ext quit EOF ncftp -u username -p passwd movies-uploads.archive.org < ftp_commands >> out rm ftp_commands

You can also check out this page for more info:

If you're not so sure about the commandline stuff and are using Windows, then I recommend downloading SmartFTP (http://www.smartftp.com) and using that.

Thanks,
Simon.
