I am not wanting to burst your bubble, but I would suggest instead of trying to transfer an 11GB file, that you use ffmpeg to shrink the file. Maybe to 480 Learning command line of ffmpeg will aid you for years down the road. There are also gui's for video manipulation for linux.
However I do not own a smart phone (old dumb samsung rugby) and I do not have any 11 gb files on my computer.

...use the SFTP client in ES File Explorer (all you need is SSH on your computer), or an Android FTP server or something (upload via FTP). I do the former.
Thanks, using that software (I paid for Pro) I can download from the SD, but not upload it....there's no manual for this app (there was but the entire site smarterdroid.com is down) and the only contact information for this app is on the app page to a Gmail address, I've sent the developer an email to said address..but I'm not so hopeful he'll help :S
Thanks, I'll try it..
So are you saying you can transfer files from your phone's SD to your computer, but not from your computer to your phone's SD? I use the app to transfer files to and from my Samsung tablet. I haven't experienced any issues other than not being able to transfer multiple files at a time since I stopped using the Chrome browser.
I wonder if it's an issue of the size of the file you're attempting to transfer. Even though it appears that you have enough space, maybe a temporary file is created, thus doubling the size of the transfer. I've heard of this happening before.

I can transfer to and from..from internal memory..but only from phone to PC from external memory, weird huh??
Anyways, using Android's file explorer that twoion suggested and Filezilla, I am able to transfer from the PC to the SD

I'm not able to move files from internal storage to external storage on my tablet except with the file manager that Samsung provided.

hmmm... i tend to agree with paxmark1, but let's just assume you have a good reason to copy an 11GB video to your phone.
my gut tells me, don't do this over wlan, use the usb cable.
i'm not sure about the "first method" you linked in your first post, is that the gphotofs method? which gives you a folder accessible by standard utilities? it say there that "The media folders can now be displayed in thunar." - so not the whole sd card? and you are sure you still have enough free space within those media folders?
another thought, don't use your file manager for copying, but use "cp".
there's also low-level mtp (or adb= android debug bridge) tools that would allow a direct copy, iirc.
