Transfer Author Video

Read Directions First

Before you start, read entire page of directions. When you click the link, you will be on a new tab.

Follow the 3 steps. You’ll be amazed how easy it is.

 

Use the online program, wetransfer.com, to transfer your completed author video to the festival registrar. It is easy to use and does not require any signup.

Do not attempt to email video files. They are too large for email servers.

 

 

Step 1

Getting started

Here is the link to the wetransfer.com website, but we suggest you read this entire page, before you click it. As soon as you do, a new tab is going to open in your browser so you can always come back to this tab if you need help.

The first thing, the WeTransfer website is going to ask you to accept cookies (as shown below.)

Click the “I Agree” button.

Next, it’s going to ask if you want advertising (see figure below.)

Click the “No Thanks” button.

Step 2

Add your file

The rest of what you need to do happens in the white panel on the left of the WeTransfer web page. (Only the panel is shown in the figure below.)

Click the blue + button next to “Add your files.”

This will open an explorer window (shown below.) Navigate to the folder containing your file.

Click on the name of your video file, and then click the “Open” button.

 

Step 3

Enter email addresses

The name of your video should now display at the top of the white panel (circled in red in the figure below.)

Click in the “Email to” field

Type the following address:
ssbfvideos@gmail.com

Never send email to the above address. It is reserved exclusively for WeTransfer services.

Click in the “Your email” field and enter your email address.

A message may pop up inviting you to sign up with them. It is not necessary to do so.

Double check. Is your video file named correctly? Are both email fields correct? If so:

Click on the “Transfer” button.

Since you didn't sign up with WeTransfer, they are going to send a verification code to your email address to make sure it’s valid. Check your email for a message from them. Enter the code they send and click on the “Verify” button. They will not transfer your file until you click Verify.

Once your file transfer is complete, you will receive an email telling you it went. When the registrar receives your file, another message will be sent telling you it arrived.
