    Send large file using yahoo mail

    I am using Ubuntu_Mate 1 I could not send a mp4 using yahoo mail because it took around 30 minutes. I reduced the size using ffmpeg. ffmpeg -i sm_Julia1.mpr -s hd480 -strict -2 output.mp4 But the file was still too big. Is there another option?

    Printer question

    I have a Canon TS 9120 printer. It has 2 black ink cartridges. Why does it have two black cartridges? I printed something and it was obvious the black cartridge(s) are empty. I would think one cartridge would empty first, then the other? Why is that? Do I need to replace both?
