Default Sweep Picking...

After having a guitar duel with a friend (I won... ) at school today I realised that I can't sweep pick on more than 3 strings . Pretty much only the A minor triad and some random things I've pulled off of the four season's winter.

So, no body around here really knows anything about sweep picking and I'm having a big problem on 4+ strings, I can do it perfectly slow until about 60ish Bpm. It's something to do with how my hand moves across the neck. When I go from the top strings to the bottom strings my hand rises up more but this really slows me down.

So does anyone know how to solve this or a problem with my technique, (I know a video would be helpfull but I can't really find anyone with a digital camera, and I don't know how to send videos from my phone to my Computer.) Also, are their any other general hints about linking sweeps together and makings various arpeggios?

I've found these on youtube. I didn't watch them till the end, but maybe you can find them useful.
