    Uploading 200MB files in 7.1.6

    I need to ne able to upload big 200MB files in 7.1.6.

    However, with no progress indicator it close to impossible to do with a slower internet connection.

    Any suggestions? Is there compatible package I can use?

    Hi Henning

    The files you're trying to upload what are they? And what should they be used for?

    Perhaps it would be a better idea to FTP upload and then make a custom file picker for editors to be able to pick the file?

    If it's videos then perhaps it would be better to create a youtube account and then embed the videos instead?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    It is a zip file with software for a device used in the car industry.

    Hi Henning

    Ok - What is the user scenario for the zip file? Should there be a download link for it?

    Then I would consider to simply just put it on the server and place a static link for it or perhaps make a property editor, which can be used to pick it using angular js.

    The only package I know about that supported uploading large files is 4-5 years old and is not compatible with Umbraco 7.

    If you have not changed the standard upload limit in .NET, which is 4 MB then you can try increasing it following the tip provided by Jeavon here http://24days.in/umbraco/2013/6-easy-configuration-tweaks/

    But I think you should also increase the timeout to 3600 seconds as well. Then you might succeed uploading the file anyway.

    Hope this helps.
