    Wondering if someone could help me figure out why I am unable to upload a large video file.
    Using Sitefinity 8.2

    Issue: unable to upload an .MP4 video file into a video library.
    The video file size is 34,574 KB

    To allow large request, our web.config has these settings:

        <system.web>
          <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="6048000" executionTimeout="7200" maxUrlLength="102400" maxQueryStringLength="102400" 

    requestValidationType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.CustomRequestValidator, Telerik.Sitefinity" />
        </system.web>

    Attempted the following in the Sitefinity backend Administration -> Settings:
    1. Libraries menu
    - "The size of a chunk in bytes when upload media data", value: 100971520

    2. System menu -> FilesModule
    - MaxFileSize: set to 204800000

    Any other settings I should be increasing?

    Thank you for your time.

    I finally figured this one out.  It has nothing to do with Sitefinity.  There was a 30MB request limit enforced by Microsoft's UrlScan on the web server. 

    To increase the 30MB limit to allow 100MB for example, go to folder:
    C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\urlscan

    Edit file UrlScan.ini with notepad.
    ...then change:
    MaxAllowedContentLength=30000000
    ..to:
    MaxAllowedContentLength=100000000
