Trying to upload file of 350mb to MySite in Sharepoint Server 2007. First noticed it won't work through Portal. Tested in the office as well - doesn't upload.
Tried timeout in IIS on server - no luck.
Any thoughts?

Two things: upload limit (probably 50MB?) and site quota.  I think our personal sites quota is 100MB by default.

 
Change the upload limit in Central Administration > Application Management > Web application general settings

The files in question are video files - .avi or .wmv.

The notes in nsyyoung feedback have resolved the upload issue - thanks. Is there also a limitation on what size .wmv file or .avi file will playback in sharepoint? A 10mb file will play but not the larger file.

Thanks

Sp2007 is not ideal for such large files, I would look at sp2010 with silverlight playback tools and remote blob storage.  Better yet, store the wmv on a file server and link to it.
