    Trying to upload videos. Successfully arrive at the “this video is being processed” stage and then…nada.

    They never get processed.

    They are .mov files. Using Mac OSC 10.7.5 and Chrome 22.0.1229.94.

    Thanks for any help.

    The blog I need help with is greetingsfromtheemptynest.wordpress.com.

    Do you have the videopress upgrade? If not, you’ll need that to be able to upload videos here. The alternative is to embed via Youtube or similar.

    Yes, I do have it. Sorry, should have included that in the first post.

    Hi Anna,

    I’ll be happy to take a closer look. Have you edited the the .mov files?

    If so, can you try uploading the original files?

    Hi Bryan:
    I didn’t edit them. Took them with my iPhone. Transferred them to iPhoto. Then exported them in “Original” to the Movies section of my desktop. Pulled them from there to try and upload them to WP.
    Thanks.

    What version of iOS and iPhoto are you using?

    Can you try using Image Capture to copy the movie file to your desktop, then upload that one?

    iOS 6.0
    iPhoto 9.3.2
    Never used Image Capture. When I opened it, it seemed to want to be connected to a camera or a scanner…
    Thanks.

    Oh, I think I see what you are getting at but the movies are no longer on my phone. Only on iPhoto – and my desktop.

    I’m having the same problem and no-one seems to be answering.

    I’m hoping Bryan went home for the weekend and will return soon to help us out.

    #1040562

    Are you also trying to get your videos out of iPhoto?

    #1040563

    no, just uploading videos … and then nothing happens!

    #1040564

    What format are they in?

    #1040565

    .avi

    Pretty much! I’m back in action now. :-)

    I think I see what you are getting at but the movies are no longer on my phone. Only on iPhoto – and my desktop.

    In iPhoto, with the video file selected, can you go to File -> Reveal in Finder -> Original File, then upload that file?

    Tried that. Still not working.

    Would upload screenshots of the process if I could…

    Tried that. Still not working.

    What browser and version are you using?

    Can you try uploading the video using the latest version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox?

    You can download the latest version here:

    Are you not able to upload images, either?
