I've never used the YUI uploader, but I am aware that PHP doesn't work
with files larger than 2 GB. This is expected to be fixed in version
. Also, Apache started
supporting files > 2 GB in version 2.2
. I'd rule out
the YUI uploader by ensuring that your server can accept uploads over 2
GB via the Web server. Try a simple html form upload with Perl,
Python, etc. If that works then try hooking the YUI uploader to that.
Otherwise, an alternative to Java applets could be some Firefox add-on
