Traders is looking for your personal videos that show off your
online trading skills from the most exotic places on the planet:

The wilder, the woollier, the better. But any spot that dramatizes

To reach our
site, simply upload your video to one of the popular web sites
that specialize in videos. Start with either of these two
www.youtube.com or www.blip.tv.

What's the best format to upload for high quality?
YouTube accepts video files from most digital cameras and camcorders,
and cell phones in the .AVI, .MOV, and .MPG file formats. They recommend the MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format at 320x240 resolution
with MP3 audio. Resizing your video to these specifications before
uploading will help your clips look better on Runaway Trader.
How long will my video take to upload?
Depending on your connection speed and the size of the video, it
can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours to upload a
video. Generally, if you have a high-speed internet connection you
can expect the upload to take somewhere between 1-5mins for every
1MB. However, the experience is different for every user because
of the variation in connection speeds.
Is there a limit to how much I can upload?
We don't have any limit for the number of videos we feature or the
length and don't foresee adding a ceiling anytime in the future. So get crankin' and upload as many videos as you'd like—it's more content
for the whole Runaway Trader community to enjoy!
P.S. If you
want to upload a video of yourself swing trading at a nudist
beach, you may do so. It may not be loaded onto our site but we'll
enjoy watching it.
