Pushing Video to Grandma(s)

So, the Viv-Text is working out well for publishing videos via Google Video, and once the new direct video upload for Blogger works (it doesn't for me, so far), I'll have a pretty short workflow for pulling short clips off my hard-drive based camera. I would like to be able to push full resolution video to my mother and mother-in-law's computers. We all have broadband, so it shouldn't be a problem, but nobody has an IP address and we're all on different platforms, so I'm not sure what to do. I'm talking 100 - 150 meg files, and I don't want to park them on a server. AIM direct transfer from Linux to Mac doesn't seem to work. I suppose Skype file transfer might work? I'd like to have the process be completely automated though. I'd rather the process not be dependent on IM presence.
