    Didn't know where to put this, sorry.

    I'm trying to send a 150 MB QuickTime file to someone in Hong Kong, and I'm having trouble sending it. I got it on my Mac.com server, but it won't load for him, and MegaUpload doesn't work in Hong Kong.

    What are my other solutions?

    Thanks.

    Is that fast? Does it cost money? Is it better than AIM?

    Skype is a pretty well-known audio/video program. It's free. It's not that fast, but if you gotta send it that way, you gotta. AIM always times out for me when sending big files.

    Oh, I know what Skype is. It's in my dock. I know that SkypeOut costs money, but I didn't know whether or not file transfers did.

    I'm trying mediafire right now, and it's uploading much faster than megaupload, so I'm going to see if this works, and if not, I'll do Skype. I only have a short window of time to work with him with the time difference and all, but this is the rare instance where DST is a good thing, I guess.

    Skype is banned at his work.

    Any other solutions, please? I"m on a deadline.

    I would think that would be banned if Skype is banned..

    Google Video? I'm trying that...

    I know, there's just a problem on one end or another with each one. I don't know which ones to use.

    All of those you listed have a 100 MB limit, and I'm 15 over that, except for megaupload, which I already tried, but it is unavailable in Hong Kong. I'm now trying sendspace, which has a 300 MB limit, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it works over there.

    The former's limit is 1 GB; the latter, 250 MB.

    I'm already about 60% through on sendspace, so if that doesn't work, I'll try one of those. Thanks.
