MP4 files won't upload in wordpress

Hi Guys

I am trying to upload a 60mb mp4 file, it starts to upload and then stop. In chrome it's says it gets to 61%.

My setting for the .htaccess is :-

php_value post_max_size 128M
php_value upload_max_filesize 128M
php_value memory_limit 300M
php_value max_execution_time 60000
php_value max_input_time 90000
php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 2400

So not sure why i have a problem.

Thanks for reporting! Are you able to upload the same video to the normal wordpress media gallery?

I have tested the upload using the wordpress media upload and at 61% i get an error 'HTTP error'.

Any ideas why i shoould get that ?

It is probably a server config issue. If you ask in the Wordpress forums there is a higher chance of running into someone familiar with this problem

We should try, some time, to make a "Wordpress installation howto" that will mention all the proper configurations. I have done it a couple of times, the only problem is that after the intallation I forgot what I did, so I would have to re-do it again. If someone carefully writes down the procedure and all the configurations, for a Wordpress installation, it might be a good idea to post it here.

I agree, good idea! And if someone does this we'll move the info to a place that will be easier for new users to find and add links from the wordpress installation guide.
