Forum: forums Subject: New Beta Uploader Issues - 2019

The posts about uploader problems have passed a readable limit on the original seven year old topic. I propose we start a new thread for 2019.

Forum: forums Subject: Uploader random crashes; "resume" broken

Recently, I have had random "crashes" uploading 200-450 MB video (mp4) files. It takes at least 3 attempts, and sometimes the upload is over 90% done when it crashes!
I am using windows 10 Prof., Chrome (v. 73.0) and Firefox (47.0.2), with typical upload speed of 330 kiloBytes/sec.
The upload "freezes" and a "network error" msg. box comes up. When I hit "resume" it goes back to the start every time--aaaAAHHHH!

I have monitored internet transfers data rates using the task manager. HERE IS THE REAL MYSTERY:
Sometimes there will be a 5 second drop to zero and it crashes.
Other times, I have seen 30+ sec. drop-out and it recovers, and finishes the upload. I don't think this problem is due to my internet connection--why doesn't "resume" pick up where it left off?

couple of things. 1. i suspect this is related to the removal of flash from the site. need to check on that. 2. we no longer support ftp so if some other fundamental change elsewhere affects ftp we will not be address ftp issues.

It seems the FTP is broken again for some time now :<
Is there a chance that someone looks into this? :)

We know FTP is not supported anymore, but the new uploader is not capable of handling the large amounts of data we are uploading - it constantly times out!

So FTP is our only option, until there is another, better way to do this :
