Google Video and YouTube

to around 100MB (~10 minutes), with 1GB files possible using a special
uploader.  Amazon's S3 REST API can allow you to upload to 5GB buckets
if Drupal has "large" files -- however S3 is a paid service.

Some nice things about S3 are that you can use a CNAME in DNS to make
the files appear to be served from the Drupal domain and you can use
bittorrent to serve files to share the load, reducing distribution
costs.  http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonS3/2006-03-01/
