Could you recommend a good freeware for sending large files, such as video, up to 1 GB over the net?
Try We Transfer. I use it and yes a little slow but it does a good job up to 2 GB files.
Use Dropbox and at least the upload will be done painlessly in the background :).
After going through the various suggestions offered, I feel Filemail is a good freeware for me. It requires no registration and can send files upto 2 GB. Ultimately, of course, everything depends on the speed of the internet connection that one has. In my case, the file upload for a 900 Mb video file took about 6-7 hours at a speed varying between 25-65 KB/s. This is really too long. Even the download from the Filemail server took about 4 hours. In such a situation, perhaps we should just forget about sending large files or start uploading at night, leave the computer to do the job and go to bed. After a good ight's sleep, the process should be over. I am not really a techie and so would appreciate some tips on this issue from more knowledgeable people.
Thanks for the feedback Utpal.
I tried FileDropper yesterday to send 300MB and it took less than an hour to upload, check it out.
