I would say HTTP File Server would be your best bet, assuming you are able to forward ports on your router and have a decent upload and download speed.
Unless the video is already standard-definition, I would not recommending using YouTube to host the videos as they can really butcher HD video's quality.
Skype can work too, but I believe Skype limits the transfer speed, where-as HFS would only be limited by the speed you are paying for from your ISP.

I Would Recoment That You Try uTorrent, It Has Worked For Me And It Is Simple. A Quoute From There Site: "Drag-and-Drop Sending: Easily send massive personal files â€“ e.g. home movies, cell phone videos and hi-res photos. Select a file on your computer, drag it into the ÂµTorrent â€œDrop files to sendâ€ box and a Web link is yours to share."

I think that the best (simplest) way to do it would be through Skype. I think it might take way too long though (maybe up to a couple of days), so my solution is make a YouTube account, and upload the videos there (privately), and download it on that other computer.
If the computers are within the same network (LAN), Skype will be able to do it pretty fast. There is the option of uploading it to a large file sharing client, but some of them you have to pay for and others you have to wait a minute or so before you're able to download it.

Try either of these:
I use both- depending on the size of the file I send. I mainly send small files (less than 1GB) so use yousendit more than sendthisfile. Both offer free versions as well as reasonable-cost, paid versions.

I'm a big fan of Dropbox. You get a 2GB free account and you can get even more free space by referring others to Dropbox. Once you try this, you'll never email stuff to yourself again.
You'll never need sweat moving another file from one computer to the next or figuring out how to get it where you need it. You'll be able to access it from any computer anywhere. You'll always have your stuff when you need it with @Dropbox. http://db.tt/8xDhJfZ
Also, "Make Use Of" made a great guide to get you going on Dropbox. You can find it here: http://www.makeuseof.com/pages/download-using-the-magic-pocket-a-dropbox-guide

Why not use something like FileZilla and FTP it over the internet. You make your home computer as an example and have it hose it. And on the other end transfer it up to that computer. Mind you I have server small servers at home with IIS running and the FTP enable on it over here. And do it that way over here. WHen dealing with 50 to 60 GIgs at a shot.
