LG spy servers accept huge http posts

I just noticed that LG servers accept absolutely huge HTTP post data. Multiple 25 gigabyte files were posted successfully in parallel. So who says that you would only send them the filename or tv channel
information. You can stream them full hd tv-shows and send full bluray rips to them in real time.

curl -F "file=@your-favoritse-show.file-extension" http://their.server.example.net/http-post-url/


I just sent them a lot of data and they accepted it happily and didn't even ban my IP. Which is nice, no reason even to use multiple IPs for sending. Maybe I'll send more? Or what about if million users would send
them a few terabytes or even bit less like hundred of gigabytes. From now on I'm sending them everything I'm watching. So if you got seedbox with free (or near free) bandwidth, just send a few copies to them of
everything you're seeding. I personally currently paying for about 30TB of traffic per month, and I'm only using something like hundreds of gigabytes. So now I got great destination for my excess bandwidth.
Any guesses how many parallel terabyte posts they can handle for multiple fast hosts? 10, 100, 1000?

Extra some headers from HTTP session.
Out: Content-Length: 1099511627776
In: HTTP/1.1 100 Continue


How nice, the accept at least 1 Terabyte posts. I hope they're ready to receive a lot of data.

If you're not familiar with curl, you can use this form. Yes, when upload is completed they'll give an error message, but it doesn't mean that they didn't received the data. So they got it all. With HTTP you can return error, even if you received the data, just to confuse end user. Think it like a situation where you're paying something with case. I say 8,50€ and you'll give me 100€, then I say. Err, could you pay for this. And completely just ignore that I received the 100€ note earlier.
