[Closed] Uploadr for Video

Flickr Staff

rcrowley says:

Update 18 December:



***Please use the new 3.1.1 version of Uploadr that you can find in this topic.

flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/87503/



______
150 MB is quite a lot, so here's a new version of Flickr Uploadr ready to send your videos to the site. It should be able to handle all of the normal video formats but if you find something strange please do let us know.

(During the beta test there was some concern about stalling uploads and that bug has been found and vanquished.)

Edit: All better now! Here are some new download links.

Windows:

German: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-de.exe
English: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-en.exe
Spanish: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-es.exe
French: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-fr.exe
Italian: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-it.exe
Korean: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-kr.exe
Portuguese: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-br.exe
Chinese: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1.0-hk.exe

Mac:

German: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1-de.dmg
English: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1-en.dmg
Spanish: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1-es.dmg

Portuguese: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1-br.dmg
Chinese: h.yimg.com/ce/flickr/FlickrUploadr-3.1-hk.dmg


For anyone having issues with this version, there are still a number of other ways to upload to Flickr. The Flash based upload page, also previously released versions, including links to some 3rd party upload applications such as Flock, Windows Live Gallery, and jUploadr. You are welcome to use whatever works best for you before another release. (Only the Flash based upload page will upload video however.)

Is this also the newest Uploadr for still photos?

I was holding out on downloading 3.0.5 until there had been 24 hours without a bug report in the thread.

Of course, an hour after that occurred, you folks released video!

So, is this a video uploadr or is it 3.0.6 video/still?

At the borrom of the news page for the video atrocity it says
"Bonus (for those who’ve read this far): We’re doubling the size of photos that can be uploaded — 20MB per photo for pro members and 10MB per photo for members with free accounts."
Are any JPEG photos ever over 20mb ? If you've upped the limit to 20 can't you allow TIFFs to remain TIFFs and not transform them into jpegs?

ColleenM says:

Robertv! (Edinburgh, UK) asked this here

This does not appear to be documented anywhere.
What is the dimensions of the video frame that Flickr is processing to?
Which Codec is best to use, to reduce your processing?
What frame rate should we optimise to?
Should we render as I or P? (Probably P.)
What is your audio sample rate etc for playback?

Knowing these details would help us to create a sharper image and do better pre-processing before uploading.

We could also use these details to reduce overhead and file size which would make things better for Flickr.

Just thinking out loud...

What happens after this freeze-- do you have to quit the application, or does it eventually fix itself?

Thanks everyone for their help with the new uploadr. We'd like to get feedback from a few more people before we deploy this one to everyone. If you know of any good testers, please send them here for a download!

djwudi says:

I don't know if this would be a Flickr Uploadr thing or an iPhoto thing, but I'd love it if the iPhoto keywords would transfer over into the tags field when dragging from iPhoto into Uploadr.

The workaround for the moment (aside from just retyping them) is selecting the keyword field in iPhoto, doing a select-all, copy, then paste into Uploadr, but then the list of works shows up comma separated rather than space separated (probably more a function of how iPhoto's copy routines work), and I have to manually change the commas to spaces.

(Techie fiddly bits: Mac OS 10.5.2, iPhoto '08 7.1.3 (364))

What I mean by the freeze is that the uploading meter shown in the bottom of the window seems to stop. I can click the cancel button and redo the uploading but then it stops again and again after uploading about 10 to 100 photos. And sometimes, the application just suddenly quit without caution.

- drag in 2nd video. progress bar never moves from 0%
- hit cancel. try again. nothing happens
- drag in same video. hit upload. progress bar never appears.
- restart app, drag in 2 videos. uploads OK
- drag in 1 photo. uploads OK.
- drag in a video. progress bar never moves from 0%

Also, it does not allow selecting .m4v extensions. However I was able to use web based upload for same extension with success.

EDIT: I have 52MB .mov file. The percentometer moves until around 20%, and stays there. I tried repeatedly 2-3 times. It does the same.

I tried uploading a 90 second video (about 75MB) using the Flickr Uploadr v 3.1 for Mac OS X (on 10.5.2). It got 91% complete and then stopped progressing. It stayed stuck at 91% for a good 20-30 minutes before I cancelled it. I noticed the following error in the console. I don't know if it's related or not, but maybe it's useful. Oh, and the video is a 960x540 QuickTime using H.264 codec.

.mov files don't work. When I drag the file to the uploadr, it shows up as a yellow triangle with an exclamation point inside of it. I tried uploading it using the web based uploader and it worked... so the problem isn't that flickr doesn't accept .mov files.

You are dropping the ball here Flickr. This new Uploadr has been out for months and has been nothing but problems. Before adding useless and obnoxious features like video, please, PLEASE fix the features that are integral to this site, like YOUR BROKEN PHOTO UPLOADER. As a paid subscriber, I would appreciate a response to this letting me know when the features I paid for and care about having will be working correctly. In the meantime I'll be manually fixing the botched descriptions on my batch upload.

I am using Uploadr for Mac 3.1, however I can't get it to work for me properly. :( It was all fine and dandy, but now when I add a photo or video to the uploadr, I get the little yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it, and I can't get this to go away! I've tried deleting my account from it and adding it again, I've tried uninstalling and deleting the .plist file, but nothing works!
Everytime I uninstall and then reinstall it, my broken files are still there in the uploadr, and it's not asking me to assign a Flickr account to it, it just keeps telling me I need to give it my permission! Which I do over and over again.. but still nothing. HELP!!

Okay. I got rid of the worthless Uploadr 3.0.5 and installed version 3.1. I launched 3.1 and before using my mouse or keyboard to do anything, Uploadr proceeded to pull in 1000 MB of pictures in the off line mode. I did not ask or request Uploadr to do anything and it is taking off on its on. What's up with that?

There are some issues with metadata that I have added via Geosetter, like keywords and geotags. When highlighting the photo in Uploadr they should show up in the tags box, but the box is empty.

However, if I leave the box alone and upload the photo, the metadata will show up as tags on the photo page, as they should. It would still be nice if I could edit the tags in Uploadr, as I would like to add/delete some for flickr-only purposes.

Why do I need to come to this forum topic to get working software? The main uploader tools page (www.flickr.com/tools/) claims that version 3.0.5 (for MacOS) will upload video. That's obviously not true.

Should flickr at least update that page to tell people to come here for the video uploader?

I was a professional computer programmer before retiring. I don't understand why you are using ONE program for uploading BOTH video and photos. It seems to me that your bread and butter was photos and you should develop a solid version of that as your number one priority.
Video must be causing new problems and trying to keep the same version of the uploadr for both is a mistake - in my humble opinion.
I am a pro user and I don't even own a video camera. Why should I have to suffer with frequent upload errors in your bread and butter business?

I am also having issues uploading files. It seems to stop somewhere in the 60s. It just stops. Cancelling it fortunately shows all the titles and descriptions are intact but for some reason it will sometime put all of them into the wrong set and there is no apparent way to remove them from all that incorrect set at once. But the bottom line is please solve the problem that is causing it to stall. Thank you.

Things are getting worse - yesterday I could upload via the home page link. And now the yellow triangle is back. Uploadr 3.1 doesn't recognise .mov files.

I sense that all this is related in someway to the start of video on Flickr - which I support - but maybe things are caving in?

So, having successly uploaded a video to my photostream, I am now trying to insert it into a discussion. Only Flickr doesn't seem to allow its own code to be used, stripping it out of the comment. Is there a way around that?

Dr Curry The comment fields cannot accept the html that is a part of the embed code. There is a way to post the cover frame's jpg (just use an img src tag and right click the video thumb to get the image location, or use the GM script, Easy Photo Post), but the video will not play inline (because it's just a jog, not a video). If you include the a href tag back to the video page, then people can click-through it to play it.

Any suggestions about how to fix the Uploadr and the home page upload?
It would be useful if the some of the suggestions came from Flickr.

I'm glad to find that the problem with the yellow triangles when uploading files containing Japanese/Chinese characters does not occur anymore in this 3.1 version. Finally, I don't have to use Uploadr 2.5 or FlickrSync anymore! ^___^

I'm glad for you. But now it happens when I use uploadr to upload files with english characters and jpg and mov files and why am I filling this box with complaints when it's clear no one has a clue and it will all work out in the end when the programmers get to grips with it.

well, after having big trouble with the earlier 3.0 version, I had high hopes for the 3.1 version .... but I still have residual "files" that the Uploadr is trying to upload from my failed attempts months ago ....

Upon opening the new 3.1, it already has several old files pre-loaded -- they all have yellow triangles, of course ... because the files have been successfully uploaded by 2.4 .... and then I moved them.

Anyway, no amount of 'select-all' or anything else allows me to get rid of these non-existent files. help!

I'm running Mac OSX 10.4.11
I've had Uploadr 3.0.5 giving me duplicate text descriptions for weeks now and it would not let me upload video at all. I uploaded 3.1 and now I can't upload pictures AT ALL. I get the yellow triangle of death. I'm not going to complain too loudly about FREE software but are any bugs being worked out at all?

I agree with meabbot- you should have a "photo uploadr" and a "video uploadr"!

meabbott says:

Kay, that was Melmashman that said that, not I. I do not agree with the assessment that there should be two programs for transferring the two types of media. Doesn't make any sense to me; there's no technical difference to transferring one type of file versus another. The technical difference between images and videos comes once the file has been uploaded and is being handled by Flickr.

These bugs are growing pains, not evidence of insurmountable problems. Nevertheless I am aggrevated by the lack of response from the Flickr folks regarding these bugs as I have also seen the yellow triangle; but I am sure they will say something when they have something to say.

I was using uploader 3.0.5. and it worked fine. Then I changed my ISP, and it works, but uploading one picture at a time.

I noticed when I click on the upload button the upload bar goes to 100% immediatly. Also if I click on the lower left arrow to see each photo upload progress, as soon I click on upload it fills 100%. I guess (almost for sure) it is a ISP related issue. It has to be, since with previous connection I didn't have that problem.

I just upgrade to 3.1 version of uploader and the problem persists: the way I'm uploading photos now is one by one: I have to wait a couple of minutes while it shows "Houston we have a problem" error, then I click on "Do nothing" ... and then I delete from the upload list the picture that was uploaded ... it seems that uploader can't identify when a picture was uploaded and go to the next one.

I'm not using any download accelerator. Windows XP SP2, everything up to date. The only change I have made is ISP, with previous one it used to work, with new one is not "turning the page".

I really hope there is a solution for this annoying problem.

My first test of Uploadr 3.1:

1. Install and Start.
2. Click Add.
3. Browse to a digital camera folder that contains 462 videos.
4. Press Ctrl-A (select all).
5. Click Open.

No files were added.

The files in question are all MPEG-1, recorded by a Sony Cybershot DSC-T1.
Total size of the files: 6,800,577,392 bytes
Largest: 361,819,591 bytes
Smallest: 48,789 bytes
Files over 150 Meg: 7

Follow-up to my previous Uploadr 3.1 test... if I add the files a few at a time (instead of all 462 at once), that seems to work. What's causing the silent failure when adding large numbers of videos?

Follow-up to my follow-up to my previous Uploadr 3.1 test... when I tried to actually upload the files, I got:

I sent the error to Microsoft: Fault bucket 642388963.

Prior to dying, Uploadr did upload 17 of the 455 video files. Of those 17 files, Flickr failed to process 2. Those 2 files play fine for me locally. As previously mentioned, all of these files are MPEG-1 created by the same camera.

my uploader still isn't working properly. the video problem was fixed with the install of 3.1 (i'm using mac 10.4.11 on a mac mini) but it still hasn't resolved my original problem, which is that it won't keep me signed in and every time i open it and press sign it it tells me i have to authorise it. i've tried revoking the permissions, uninstalling, reinstalling and authorising, but nothing works and it's beginning to really get on my nerves. i love the accessibility of the 3.series but the reliability with 2.5 was much better and i might just go back to that if i can't resolve this!

melmashman says:

I would like to explain why I suggest two separate programs used for uploading pictures and video. It is all about VERSION CONTROL and letting customers know that a new presumably better version is available that will effect their need. The way it is now there is know way of knowing whether 3.1 has any improvements for picture uplaoding than 3.0.5. When I have issues I want to go to the newest version, but I don't want to go through the trouble of installing a new version if there are no enhancement for uploading pictures.
Also, keep it simple. Fix bugs related to uploading photos and make the code efficient with one team working on issues related to just photos. If you want to use common programming modules for some aspects of the programs for both pictures and videos that is an internal flickr decision. The version release number however should be improving video OR photos so users know when to install an enhancement that will improve THEIR need. Currently there are a lot of us that are clearly unhappy with the function of uploading pictures which is why we purchased a pro version. I trust fixing this is a high priority. Thank you for reading and considering this idea.

melmashman 3.1 actually has improved some features just in terms of uploading photos (like the duplicate tag/description thing).

Shanan/Flickr,

I am getting a bit confused about which uploadr to use for _photos_ only? The one under tools (3.0.5) or the one posted here (3.1)? Or can use both? Which one is beta, if any? Which one is preferred?

Is it possible to have a page (the tool page itself perhaps redesigned) where multiple release versions are listed, along with link to the 'official version xxxx thread'?

I have been using Flickr for quite some time now - it used to be pretty simple earlier with just one Uploadr at one time. Now, its getting confusing.

This is more of a suggestion rather than complaint - I know you guys are working hard to solve bugs and adding functionalities to Uplodr.

Cheers!

When I upload with 3.1 it stalls at 98%; all the photos upload, but it results in an error if I have selected photos to add to sets (and doesn't add them to the sets). If i don't select any photos to add to sets, it uploads fine.... It did fine with video in the aforementioned manner.

I'm running Vista Home Premium with SP1, fyi.

Now that rcrowley has left Flickr, is anyone at Flickr fixing the issues in Uploadr, or is the project on hold until another developer is hired?

I've just ported DOM Inspector 2.0.0 to Flickr Uploadr 3.1
If you want to write extensions for Uploadr, you might find it useful.


Edit: Never mind. I'll just post it at Hacking Uploadr group.

hoosierfeet, I have a similar problem - it finishes loading (100%), says processing..... and stays there. It doesn't put the files in the selected sets, but they are uploaded. If I close Uploadr, the next time it opens, the files are still there - I have to manually remove them.

I am using Uploader 3.1 on Windows XP SP2

Hollywood Monkey says:

I would like to confirm an issue with the Mac uploader (downloaded from the link at the top of this thread today)

The uploader would not take my .mov file. It showed the file name with a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. I was able to upload using the web based uploader with no problem, so it's not the file.

some details:
monkey wants donuts.mov 111.1mb duration 1:29
640x480 Letterbox
quick time file made using the AAC and mpeg-4 codecs
mono 48KHz Target Bit Rate 80kbps
Fast Start (prepare for internet streaming)

hope this info helps

Uploading with the 3.1 and 3.05 version of Uploadr is slow for me. I tried several pc's (xp, vista) and they all show an upload speed of 40-50 kb/s, this is way too slow for my connection. Uploading via the webbased tool shows uploadspeeds of 100-110 kb/s.

In short: uploading with uploadr takes twice as long, help?! ;-)

Hope this hasn't already been mentioned, but i had a problem with the yellow warning triangles caused by uploader not finding images etc. I sorted it by opening tools-consoles and clicking 'clear' to delete the errors that i had shown. Seems to of sorted it out for me...

My uploader stalls after about 100-150 pictures are processed in its queue :(
When I close it and reopen it, all pictures (uploaded & not uploaded) are again in the queue, but hitting the upload button again doesn't appear doing anything.

Haven't tried the 3.1 uploadr yet, but the web uploadr doesn't take my .MOV file. Here's the process:

1) From homepage I choose 'Upload photos and videos..' and go to flickr.com/photos/upload/

2) click the 'Choose Photos and Videos' button.

3) Finder comes up, I choose my video 'the_toss.MOV' around 20M, and click choose.

Nothing happens in the upload view ... bah!

This is in Safari Version 3.1.1 (5525.18) ... haven't tried FF yet.

@mandric- this is known weirdness in Safari that affects images too. Scott thinks there is some communication silently being dropped between Flash and Javascript that isn't generating any errors. This has been problematic before. :(

@Woody Thrower- yes, this project is with a developer here still, all the feedback here is being looked at for app improvements and fixes.
