I am uploading lunch and learn videos to Google Video and normally I have not had any issues however since I have been adding more videos I have recently had issues with my last video going up it is 38 min and all I see in the error is that it failed.
Has anyone experienced this before? Also what is the best way to put longer videos such as 35 - 45 min presentations on the web?
First I would recommend uploading your videos to YouTube, not Google Video. YouTube has much better branding as most people know if it, not so much with GV. Then check out this page [help.youtube.com].
The page is an FAQ about uploading video. There are many types of accounts, including some that allow you to upload longer and larger videos.
You can no longer upload videos longer than ten minutes regardless of what type of account you have. Users who had previously been allowed to upload longer content still retain this ability, so you may occasionally see videos that are longer than ten minutes.
I currently have my YouTube account set to director and the reason I have been using Google is because it has allowed me in the past to upload my videos however recently it has been giving me that failed error and is not telling me why.
how long does it take you to upload a 1G file? perhaps the script or the http connection is simply timing out. in my experience it is unreliable to expect to upload much more than 100M file sizes using ftp protocol.
