    Default How do i upload videos to the box app?

    I bought my N4 on launch day knowing what I was getting myself into: only 16 gigs of internal storage (expecting 12 which is what I got). No surprise there. My wife got a Samsung Galaxy S3 about 3 weeks before I got my Nexus. Right before I got my N4, I gave her a 16 gig SD card because I knew that the N4 wouldn't have external memory. I heard that the Nexus 4 qualified for 50 gigs of free cloud service through box.net. So I downloaded the app and set everything up and I have no problem with uploading pictures or videos that run under 30 seconds or so. Video files larger than about 50 or 60mb won't upload. Does anyone know if there is something I can do about this? Its very frustrating having to trim a 2 minute video of my kids into 3 or 4 separate videos and upload them one by one. When I got the phone, I was relying on android beam to transfer pics and vids to my wife's gs3 but that doesn't work either so.. Any help is much appreciated.

    Not an answer to your question, but an idea:

    If you haven't already, download and install the ASTRO File Manager / Browser app from the Play Store.

    On your N4, turn on tethering (Settings -> More... -> Tethering and portable hotspot

    On your wife's phone, open WiFi settings and establish a connection with your hotspot

    Open Astro on your N4 and click the "Locations" tab. After a bit of searching, it should locate your wife's phone. Now just figure out how to copy files from one device to the other over the Wi-Fi connection.

    I just made this work N4 <> Laptop PC. Don't see why it shouldn't work N4 <> GS3.

    its box's strategy. they set a limit to the file you can upload so that you will purchase their paid service.

    I got Google drive which gives me 5 Gb with no limits of any sought. skydrive gives me 25 Gb with no limits either.

    or get a dropbox account

    For free accounts the limit is 100Mb per file which for video isn't very much especially in HD.
