Uploading video

I'm trying to upload a video to my website. I've converted my .flv file (9.5 mb) to a .mp4 file but the control panel doesn't read that properly. Is it possible to increase the maximum file size I can upload in the control panel from 8 mb to accommodate the orignal 9.5 mb file? 

 

Thanks.

Hello,

Yes, it's possible. But it's not Moto CMS setting - it's the server's configuration. If you have access to php.ini on the server, look for the line "upload_max_filesize" and change the value. Then find "post_max_size" - it shouldn't be less than "upload_max_filesize".

If you don't have access to php.ini, then you should contact your hosting provider and ask to increase the upload file size.

Best regards,

What also works is uploading a small file, then replacing that file with the large one (same Name) directly on the FTP. Just tried it for Video MP4, works. Unfortunately it's not Streaming?

Hello Alex,

Yes, it is one of workarounds but we can not guarantee the normal functioning of uploaded file. And as you have notified is it not steaming.

Contact us if you have any questions!
