Trying to upload a video but keep getting the error below. It's only 235MB in size, so not sure why it won't post. I've posted smaller ones with no problems.

I think you need to use the "Add media" feature, not the upload feature.

Yes, I did "Add Media" > "Album" then picked the Album and chose "Video" then Upload. This worked with a different/smaller file. Not sure why this one doesn't work. I'll try on a different album

My file was 234MB in size. I have since uploaded it to youtube, and I don't use adblockers on this site. I even tried with the VPN off.

Yeah I just tried things out without issues - including speed, uploaded a 50MB file in 3 seconds... I'm guessing you just had a bad connection before...

As far as the other thing goes, I think it's the .MOV file format that's the issue. Do you know what codec the video is? Can you transform it to an mp4 or mkv or something else before uploading it? I'm assuming whatever codec it is, it's probably something unsupported by our on-server encoder (ffmpeg). Apple loves using proprietary codecs and crap for everything they use, it wouldn't surprise me if that's the case here.

yes the speed was back to normal, wifi and cell for me. I also have a feeling it may be the apple file format.

im not sure if the iphone would allow me to change format but ill try. I been so pumped up about not having to use a desktop since my dash cam loads my files onto my iPhone for me with their app (Viofo A129).

Could you attach the video here to the thread so I can take a closer look? Or I can get you a quick place to upload it if you need.
