Store Videos?


I am developing a Online Video Purchase System using Microsoft.Net(VB). The backend database is MS Access. The application has the abilty to store and retrieve video files. I am very knew to the Access databases and would like to know on how to go around this.

Any thoughts would be higly appreaciated.....

Re: Store Videos?

I would avoid this model at all costs, video files are large and storing them in an access database which has a limit of 2GB means you would likely only be able to store a handful of small video clips before having to create a new database.

What you might want to do is use access to store the location to the particular video file in question then have your program retrieve it from a file server or wherever.
