How to allow users to upload large files (6 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I am building a site in which I offer services for media enhancement. My clients would have to send me their files which can reach 1.5+ GB. I've set up inline upload and I've change the max upload to 4GB.

    It seems to fail around 25%.

    Is it even possible to allow users to upload files this big? and whats the best plugin for that?

    I've tried using the dropbox plugins but non of them seem to do the job, there's always some sort of issue with them.

    And another question if you know it off the top of your head.. are there any plugins out that allow me to display something like a "whats new with the site" update feed? Something that will allow me to easily type in a couple new things and it will display it via home page or widget on the side?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Have you find any solution for uploading?
    I am using form manager to upload files but I have same issues.
    I set my php.ini file to allow 250Mb and changed form manager setting to 250mb but it always giving me "File upload exceeded maximum allowable size error" message when I trying to upload 25mb size file.

    If some one knows how to increase the limit, let us know.
    Thank you.

    Try changing the max_input_time and max-execution_time to a few minutes (120), that said, time to upload a file is dependent on many things such as the uploader's connection speed, file size, their own hardware and software, server configuration, server load, etc...asking them to try to reduce the upload size is going to be your best option...

    I actually did find a solution. This uploader here uploads files in "chunks". For example you can set it to upload in 10MB chunks, and after the entire file is uploaded all the chunks are put back together.

    I've successfully uploaded a 1GB file on a server in which the php.ini settings specify a 64MB max_upload_size.

    There's the site ^, Let me know if it works out for you.

    I would not allow users to upload files for security reasons...
