I've read rule and understand we do not use any external service such as rapidshare, but I cannot do anything else, this video cut was in 4k Ultra High Definition, a single slice cut of it was already 6MB (our limit was 2.5MB), please understand for this particular case.

This is HDR, you will need HDR device for colors not to grey out or use VLC to SDR convert it on the fly.
