I'm setting up a wordpress site for a friend who has some large audio files (around 150M). He's on a bad connection and it'll take him a while to upload those files using the normal wordpress upload tool. I'm looking for a tool that I can install on the server that allows uploads and is also fault tolerant (for example if you loses his connection, or power, or whatever it'll pick up where it left off). I realize normal web technologies probably don't do that, but perhaps flash or something similar will work. Any ideas?
I generally discourage uploading giant files through the browser, if possible; it just sucks. If going around WordPress a bit is an option, there's a plugin, Add From Server that allows for grabbing stuff that's already on the filesystem. So, have client ftp the files in(which gives you resuming etc. for free) and then import when ready through the WP admin.
