    Hi, I have a client that wants to upload very large files (they could be up to one gig).

    He wants a form that will be able to pick this up and store it in their servers. Is this doable?

    Not likely.

    A) A 1GB upload could take a day on an old connection.
    B) Your host surely limits the file upload size as does WordPress as does PHP to a much smaller size.

    C) Image just 25 people doing this at once....

    Folks like Facebook and YouTube etc. have huge and very costly data centers that can handle such.
