    I am thinking about getting wordpress business but I want to make sure I am able to upload videos. We do trainings. I understand that I have unlimited storage. Will I be able to upload videos that are bigger than 1gb?

    The blog I need help with is afternoontune.wordpress.com.

    Thanks for your reply, however my question wasn’t answered in that thread. I read that you can upload with videopress unlimited videos however each video cant be more than 1gb. We are going to do a wordpress site forsure, we are just trying to figure out what it all comes with.

    See here for details of all 3 plans http://store.wordpress.com/bundles/
    For the business bundle see http://store.wordpress.com/premium-upgrades/wordpress-business/

    Note that none of the plans allow you to run advertising or to upload your own themes or plugins. WordPress.com blogs cannot be equipped for eCommerce transactions. If you need a site that requires a custom theme or plugins — e.g., if you want to be able to sell things directly from your site, or if you want to install discussion forums — a self-hosted WordPress site might be right for you. See here for the comparison http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Thanks for all that info. More specifically, are we able to upload videos that are bigger than 1gb? Lets say a video is 1.5 gbs will we have to upload it in two parts?

    I noticed you mentioned that there is no e-commerce on the sites. If we did registration to our events, would we be able to do that on the wordpress site or would we have to link to our main website for a registration form?

    How big of a file can I upload?
    We’ve had good success with file sizes up to 1 GB. You can try file sizes up to 1.4 GB, but your experience may vary. Remember, uploading big files can take a long time! http://en.support.wordpress.com/videopress/#frequently-asked-questions

    If you do registration, you can use a Contact Form, as explained in the Support documents, but if you are taking money for registration, you will want to look at the Eventbrite widget and run the registrations through Eventbrite.
