A few questions about how the Photopost script handles video files. Can users upload more then one video? How much video can a user upload?

Thank you,

They can upload as many as you want to allow them - you can place restrictions on the size of the multimedia file or an overall max cap on the total bytes a user can upload total.

I have some videos that are 20mb+ in some of my galleries.

I've been doing a search through some threads about video but I still haven't seen an example of an uploaded video clip in a website running photopost. Will the video be streamed on it's own page or start downloading?

Here's one of my multimedia galleries. You can select to have videos streamed (as I have here) or downloadable by clicking on an icon.

Is it possible to create a separate thumbnail (either inside or outside of PP) and associate it with each clip, rather than the generic 'Video' thumbnail?

As you can see from my gallery, I have both thumbnails from the video and standard thumbnails. You can upload an optional thumbnail at the time you upload the video to be used in place of the default.
