It's also possible to download a file from Google Drive, but you need to transform the URL and ask curl to follow redirects:
<source lang="bash">
curl -L -O -x webproxy.eqiad.wmnet:8080 https://googledrive.com/host/0BxoqnOKDr5j5NWJHQ0RlM2VJcWM
</source>
You have to use <nowiki>https://googledrive.com/host/<the file ID></nowiki> as URL.

Per [1] the maximum file size is 4GiB.

Requirement

You need:

  • the URL of the media file to upload
  • a text file with the first revision content
  • the name of the user account for this first revision and upload

Step 1: download files

Download the files to terbium (or if there's not enough space, tin) with http_proxy=webproxy.eqiad.wmnet:8080 (or https_proxy for https requests)

(url-downloader.wikimedia.org:8080 has a limit just under 1GB - see [2])

curl -O -x webproxy.eqiad.wmnet:8080 <URL>

At this stage, it could be pertinent to check the hash of the file if known.

Step 2: import image to Commons

mwscript importImages.php --wiki=commonswiki --comment-ext=txt --user=USERNAME /tmp/uploads

Tip and tricks

Google Drive

It's also possible to download a file from Google Drive, but you need to transform the URL and ask curl to follow redirects:

curl -L -O -x webproxy.eqiad.wmnet:8080 https://googledrive.com/host/0BxoqnOKDr5j5NWJHQ0RlM2VJcWM

You have to use https://googledrive.com/host/<the file ID> as URL.
