Shouldn’t sending large files be easy? And, shouldn’t receiving them be easy too?
So you bought this 10 mega pixel camera [or a HD camcorder] and took some brilliant pictures [or videos] and are now thinking of sending them to your friends and family. Or maybe you are in the media business and want to send a 10 GB commercial video file to your clients for review.
Here are your options:
E-mail them as attachments. Select, attach… select, attach … There are limit on the amount of files you can attach. There are limits on the size of files you can attach. Many email providers will reduce the size and quality or your pictures. Most providers will not even allow you to send video/audio files.
Upload them to file sharing websites. There are many providers. Most have a basic free version and premium version. They are ok to upload few files but the moment you try to upload large and many files, the experience degrades quickly. Those that do allow for large uploads, will not do resume of uploads or downloads, if the connection breaks.
Use FTP. You can read all about FTP here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FTP. You need FTP clients, FTP servers, create and manage accounts etc.
