Pushing form with media to Aggregate: request entity too large

Dear all,

We're trying to push a form to aggregate, but we are constantly running into the error that the request entity is too large. This is because of some media file we have attached to the form (30MB in total, this is for an ACASI survey). Is there a way around this to get the form and its associated media into Aggregate? Alternatively, can we simply push the form to Aggregate, and install the media folder manually on each machine?
We can't reduce the size of the media any further, without deteriorating the quality of the survey. We're using the google app engine on aggregate.

Thanks for any insight,

Thanks a lot for the reference; pushing the files in several uploads worked did the trick.
