4GB Video upload/download(10 posts)
Dropbox has a 2GB limit for free but you could split it if no one comes up with one with a higher limit.
You'll need to get your family to download the File splitter/joiner or send it too them.
DropBox has a file size limit upload size of 300MB. In fact, I think most file hosting sites have about the same filesize limits.
It might be cheaper and faster to burn the file to DVD's and mail them to your family members.
@ StringJunky - That's true, you do get 2GB free storage but you can not upload a 2GB file.... Largest file you can upload in one chunk is 300MB.
Try it. Create a 350MB file and try to upload it to your dropbox account. You will get a error message that your file exceeds the filesize limit of 300MB.
That means you have to split a really large file into 300MB segments then upload each part and also make sure you don't exceed the 2GB storage capacity of your account.
@ onlyongabonga - Sorry but I have never used torrents so I know nothing about them or how they work.
There arent my sites which will provide you free 4GB file upload for free. You might have to split the file using win rar and then you can use any of the free file sharing sites.
In Skydrive you get 7GB of free storage. Normal uploads are 300MB maximum. But with the Skydrive App you can upload up to 2GBs in one file.
I suggest to split your video in two halves. Use the free Machete video editor. The files have to be in .avi or .wmv. This editor is extremely fast and produces lossless output. The people who receive the video can use Machete to put it back together.
