    Right now after creating a DVD for a client, I need to deliver a physical dvd to the client for proofing.

    Is there a convenient way to do this over the internet?

    I tried to upload the dvd image file to a cloud drive. Unfortunately, all cloud drives have a 2GB per file limit. I don’t want to have to break the file into pieces and then ask the client to reassemble them.

    Is there some software that would either stream a dvd image file on demand, perhaps in lower resolution, or to recompress an iso image file to under 2GB and can still be played back with some video player? I need to preserve navigation and menus because that is part of the proofing process.

    Setup a Google account & you will get 15 GB of cloud space!
    Up- & download speed are great, the Google Drive is one of the most reliable cloud services.
    I would suggest you to create a segmented archive (ZIP or RAR) encrypted by password, each around 1GB.
    Advantages:
    1. The receiving person can download a damaged segement again without downloading the whole image.
    2. An encrypted archive takes care of that the right person will have access to your content.
    3. A successfully expanded archive is like a CRC check.

    best regards
