    Hey Piervito, an ftp stands for "file transfer protocol" (iirc), and is a gateway to send and receive files from a computer over a network to a server. So at pond5, you can upload a bulk of files using a free program such as FileZilla to pond5s server, and don't need to use the web interface in their upload area. Can be useful for large amounts of files, and also, the web upload widget doesn't function correctly every once in a while.
    Somewhere on pond5, there's a description of the process. Once you studied and used it, it's pretty easy.

    You're welcome :)
    If I remember correctly, the ftp-info is at the upload dialogue. You'd have to fill in the pond5 connection data in e.g. FileZilla, and your username + password and start uploading. Cheers!
