Hi Marilyn - Apologies to you and to Joe for the delayed response.

How big is the file that Joe would like to upload? There are some technical limitations that put a practical cap on how big of a file we can allow to be uploaded on the Commons. A bit bigger than 40MB is probably fine, but hundreds of megabytes probably won't work for a number of reasons.

If the file is quite large, then a service like YouTube is probably a good fit. Once uploaded to YouTube, the video could be embedded on a Commons site simply by pasting the YouTube URL onto its own line in the post editor.
