I took a time lapse and tried to upload it to my media and it says the format can’t be transcoded. Surely the forum can handle iphone videos?

I tried it again and same results, HTF doesn’t support the format. Tried a different video and same results. So I guess no iphone videos on HTF?

Hmmmmm.

It was a ,mov file (an iPhone movie). But when I uploaded it to the HTF, it got converted into an .mp4 file (standard video extension).

I could not figure out a way to embed it into a post. But, as you can see above, it made a link out of where it's hosted on the forum and is clickable.

It's video of Ernie in a freak May snowstorm.

It's just six seconds (still a large file by image standards) but doesn't even play properly. It was 11mb when it was created as a .mov file.

That's too big to upload here. We allow a maximum video size of 25mb, so you'd need to upload to YouTube/Vimeo and then post the link here to embed into your post.

So the HTF is following in the time honored tradition of making error messages ambiguous. ;)
