You answered it yourself it's a timeout problem as for 2gb or 1gb file to be uploaded you sure need some more timeout than this 300 try making it 0 (unlimited) and check again if the problem is gone

Hope this helped

Try to increase your timeout if the problem still persist then you need to send a file chunk by chunk.
