Hi,

I've seen a couple of posts from artists asking how to distribute their files with a slow internet etc. and I though I'd share my system.

I am not affiliated with 'CrushFTP' in any way. I just use it.

CrushFTP - http://www.crushftp.com/ is a cloud based ftp application. It runs on almost any operating system. I have it installed on a $5 per month CentOS 6 i386 droplet from Vultr: https://www.vultr.com

You can create a 'User Watch Folder' that has a script to distribute all files in that folder to each agencie's ftp. Upload your files once to CrushFTP and it will do the rest.

If you are uncomfortable setting the software up on a cloud server the people at CrushFTP will install it for you for a small fee ($50).

I upload a 4K video file once and then automatically distribute it to all agencies with no problems.

'hope that helps.

Thanks, I'll certainly look into this, sounds promising. I also appreciate the other replies too. FTP files while sleeping may be is obvious but still good advice. My first hotel has such slow uploading I gave up. Found a cafe with fast internet but don't want to spend too much time in a cafe. So I guess the real question is how can you make sure your budget hotel has super fast internet before booking. I'd suggest it's pot luck and just to book for a couple of days. Move if it's slow and hope the next one is better. In KL and Singapore I found and stick to budget accommodation with fast internet I know of.
