About limited artifact size

Hi there,

Github releases don't have limits for total file size.
While in appveyor, as written in the docs "Deployment is always done from artifacts. You package artifacts and then deploy from there."

But if file is larger than 1.5 GB the artifacts won't get uploaded, thereby hindering the downstream deployment to github release.
How to solve this?
Can't the limit be lifted temporarily before it gets pushed to github release?

    Is there a specific error message you're receiving when uploading the artifact?

    AppVeyor, or indeed any build automation tooling, is not really intended to be used for trafficking or storing large media files like mp4s.
