LARGE Audio-Video Files to WP & FTP
LARGE FILE PROBLEM:
WordPress does not allow large media files to be inserted. And this was huge problem for me as I have hundreds of large audio and video files (many of them are over an hour long).
Some have recommended SoundCloud. But that site limits the number of uploads!
You must learn FTP. This will allow you to upload your large files to WA (which is essentially a large storage drive). Click the following tutorial:
You might run into server connection problems like I did. If so, contact the WA support team and they will help.
Transfer your large files from your local file directory to your remote directory. Create a file folder where you can easily find them.
Then you still need to make these files available inside your local media library so that you can insert them into your site.
THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP: you must ADD a plugin called "Add from Server" and use it to import your large files to your media library. After installation, hover over "media" and you will see an option called "add from server". Click and import. It works fast.
Then you can go through the regular steps of adding media and WP will accept these large files.
Hope that helps
