    I have a client who is not so tech savvy, and wish to send me a couple of big videos & photos (over 900MB filesize per video) to complete his project.

    I normally use dropbox for all media sharing, but this client probably wouldn't know (or have time to learn) how to download dropbox and share the files from there.

    Is there any service I can subscribe where he can just upload directly to my account without limitation (or without having me giving my access credentials)?

    Any inputs will be appreciated. Thanks.

    If you can manage to make him install Teamviewer you will have the option to do the job. It's quite easy to install.

    CD/DVD, Thumb drive, external hard drive... are any of those an option?

    Prefer to transfer files over online, as opposed to meeting in person. Thanks tho

    Appreciate the suggestion, but that's likely not going to happen.

    How about compressing them into a rar or zip file, but not sure if your client knows how to do it? I had a couple of sites in mind that were cloud based but I forgot them =(

    Google drive is simple to use for upload and once done he can send you the download url. Can't get simpler than this.

    I use RapidShare and just send the download link.

    If the client is that bad on a computer get them to put the files on a USB stick and post them to you - next day delivery.
