Subject RE: [FILEUPLOAD] Problem with huge files (>2GB)
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 17:12:57 GMT
Our company has an API you could use to send files that doesn't have a 2GB
limit.  We also supply a client for Windows that makes it easy to use the
API.  From your application you would just do an HTTP post to our file
manager (which runs as a daemon on your desktop), and it in turn transfers
the file with no size limit.

If that seems helpful or useful to you let me know and I can give you
details.

Subject: Re: [FILEUPLOAD] Problem with huge files (>2GB)

Well, I indeed stumbled upon this in a academical context (my master 
thesis), but the application I'm developping actually has practical uses 
(Media Asset Manament system, the uploaded files are raw and unencoded 
video-files)

Perhaps I should try to split the files in pieces of less than 2GB, but 
I think I will have to do this outside the browser (as no 
client-side-technologies are able to access files, if I'm correct?)

And no, I didn't tried a 64-bit browser, cause I don't have any...
But I don't think that would be a practical solution anyway :)
