    I'm trying to tell someone who's running windows how to send a 166mb video file of a talent show she was in. I'm not sure what to tell her.

    I've tried AIM with no luck, yousendit.com only allows 100mb files... any other ideas?

    Skype

    http://www.skype.com/

    n.b. Skype is P2P so you wont have to waste time uploading the whole file onto a site and waiting for that to finish before your friend can download it form you and msn messenger is not really that reliable.

    Seconded. Skype's file transfer is pretty good.

    Mail a CDR.

    Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of mag tape.

    not reccomended. They have like 30 pop-ups every time you go to the site. It also kinda slow also... if you really wanted to, you couldl buy a hosting package for a month or so and upload it there...

    Would a CD being FedExed overnight not work? If youve got the time and money for it, its much simpler. So many variables with trying to send over the wires... Once my files get over about 50MB or so, I just mail them out if all possible. Saves me a lot of hassle.

    I have 20+ GB of online webspace, so I just FTP it to my site and IM/email a link to the receiving party.

    i think that's small enough for www.yousendit.com
    the limit was 1gb... i think it's 250mb now.

    One bit at a time...

    Unless you've got a Torrent of course!

    I've sent pretty big files over AIM, I think one of you is misconfigured to be honest. Try a sample file like an MP3. Also when AIM does really big files, it takes a while for the software to load up the big file, but I've definitely sent over 1GB on AIM and it worked just fine, and I regularly send like 350MB files.
