I’m rounding up a video gallery and am using 7 FLV videos from a videohive author. Those alone are 201 of a total of 203 mb in the preview.zip. Can/should I upload those (that zip) or should I somehow call/load them from the videohive server?

If you are refering to the upload size limit, I think its 500mb.

i’d recommend to reencode those video for optimal flash playback (avoiding uber extra super quality 6000k bitrate) and include in preview.

Don’t make download files too big, many buyers have slow connections or pay for bandwidth… try to stay lighter than that.

Why don’t you link to the videos hosted on videohive from your XML ? In this way you don’t need to include the heavy files…

The download file itself is only 2mb… 201 o.o 203 mb in preview are video file

I checked on videohive and they’re large too. So I just emailed the author to check if he has any smaller-size samples. Is probably better anyway.

tnx all.

If it is for preview purposes only, it does not matter how large it is. I think it is safer to just put the files on the server instead of linking to another file which could be deleted in the future. If you keep it small, you only make it easier for yourself for example when you want to do an update etc.
