I used dvd decrypter and the clip is on my computer.(photo attached). Now, the file shows 41.7kbs and when i put the pointer on it. that shows 42mbs. Is this too large to send in an email. Thank You?

42mB is way too big to e-mail, many recipients will only have a mailbox of 10mB or less.

That's because it is still DVD quality. You need to convert it to a "portable" format.

Thank you i used "any video converter" that worked and then found "cuteSENDIT"(attached) and the 42mb email has been sent and received. Another successful operation.
