Would one of the staff please look into this. I went ahead and uploaded the movie to Facebook. It is a new free addon of a small town, very realistic and contains 100 different buildings, all low poly. I know the users here will like it a lot and it will be very useful.

That error doesnt actually stop the upload from happening, it is just a problem with the progress indicator.
Although it may be the case that if you close the browser window, that would stop the upload.

Hum, okay, well I will try it again and just let it alone until it uploads. I have very fast internet and usually a five minute movie will take a few minutes to upload here.

I thought maybe it was the AVI file so I converted it to an mp4 and still having the same problem and messages. Could someone please help me figure this out. I have tried to upload this several times now today with the same problem.

Fixed it. It was FIREFOX that was the problem. Switched to Internet Explorer and it is uploading fine now.

I'm getting this error now.

I left it to run (I could see the wee spinny thing on the browser tab continuing to spin), then the screen blanks and I get an "Internet Explorer unable to display this page" error. Clicking refresh takes me back to the screen with the upload button.

I've been through this a couple of times and as far as I can tell the upload has been unsuccessful.

Iceaxe did you convert it to a WebM video. That seems to be the only that works.

That is incorrect. I uploaded a .wmv file two days ago.

Yes, now I'm using a different computer with a different connection - problem has gone.

The upload timed out though, but that's down to my crappy connection.
