    I have a friend who has several videos totally about 1 GB to upload to facebook. I logged into her computer remotely and was able to upload a few small videos but anything over 2 MB times out. I temporarily set her up with an FTP account on my server and started the upload for her but it's going to take abotu 10 hours. :eek:

    I suggested she burn them to a CD then mail them to me but there still has to be a better way. The files are too big for email... I suspect services like megaupload or rapidshare would time out just like facebook due to her upload speed being so atrocious.

    Any ideas?

    The first two things to come to mind are putting them on a thumb drive and uploading from work, or borrowing/ uploading over a neighbors open wireless who has a faster connection ( :cool: ). If time is not critical can they postal mail you a flash drive?
