    If you're familiar with torrents, create a torrent file that will enable your friend to download the video directly from your computer.

    Hi folks

    I think you are attacking this the wrong way

    presumably if it's a video / audio file then you could simply get your user to view it via streaming -- if you know how to share a directory over a network then at the remote end (the client) could simply view or listen with KODI or equivalent -- this would easily work so long as the multi-media Internet stream doesn't drop below around 3 - 4 Mb/s on any end of the connection. On most ISP's download is mega faster than upload but there's only a stream needed in this case. If the end user wanted to keep the file then while playing the end client could use a video capture device or simply record the audio.

    Another way would be to load it up as a torrent -- torrents don't always have to include illegal things or have "nasties in them. Also you share the load on your PC so the actual transfer would be better at the download time - and once you've seeded the stuff you can logoff.

    The problem of torrents is that in loads of countries the bigger torrent sites are blocked - these are the sites with the most users so less load on your PC. However if you know about TOR and "Onion" addresses then all these blocks are ineffective -- even that site which has an image of a ship flying The Skull and Cross bones is accessible. Both parties though will need access to the same torrent site.

    For TOR

    Download Tor

    For more detail on some of the sites use

    DUCKDUCKGO as search engine here :

    Snail mail is also reasonable these days -- a DVD doesn't cost much to post from almost any two countries in the planet -- difficulty is that some computers don't have CD/DVD drives any more.

    My preferred method would be the Server route. Share the file and let the end client play it via KODI etc on the remote piece of equipment.
