    Hello,


    I guess this is the right section to ask this, but if there's a way to do it without coding, I'm open to suggestions as well.

    What is the most efficient way to upload files from a URL (ie. jpg, mp4, etc.) directly to a cloud storage service (ie. G,OneDrive,Amazon,DropBox,etc)? I know each has a slightly different API requiring different approaches, but I can figure that shit out as needed.

    I am looking for a solution similar to the service provided here,

    Code:
    http://uploadcloud.net/
    but with preferably less limitations on the file size (probably 350mb max each). It would be awesome to be able to do this en-masse, similar to how the site above allows multiple URLs at once. I've read on a few solutions doing so with Python, but the most simple way to go about it using URLFetch seems to be limited at 25mb or it will return an error. I am soft at coding but can read it well enough to use as needed, so any suggestions along this vein would be awesome!

    I would prefer to write directly to the cloud server and not have it download on my HD at all, but if this is absolutely required as a buffer then whatever lol. As long as it can be fairly automated.

    I know someone here has done something like this before. Any tips or suggestions from ye code junkies?


    Thanks!

    Bump, still researching this. Anyone have ideas? Even bad ideas would help me brainstorm. :)
