I have seen people talking about GitHub as a repository for source code and I myself use GitHub for distributed version control, but one thing I didn't understand is why don't people use it for sharing video and audio files?
Sure, the compression takes long time (it took ten minutes for a small 5MB .mp3 file for me) but it's actually possible to upload files like that right?
Note: I know that we can compress audio and video into a format like .tar and upload it painlessly on GitHub, but that's not what I am really concerned about.
- What in GitHub makes it really bad place to use it for cloud storage?
Is it just that delta compression process that makes it a bad option?
- What is the maximum storage space that GitHub offers for free accounts?
- Is there any way we can hack GitHub commands, using which we can use GitHub like Dropbox? (may be by disabling compression, or something like that)
