I see that each photo uploaded shouldn't exceed 200mb but I can't find anywhere if there a monthly limit for uploading

I'm trying to upload videos to flickr and Flickr is saying that I've hit my Movie Upload limit for a Flickr Basic account. Pretty sure I haven't filled my 1TB yet so what's up with this??

Videos are limited to 3 minutes in length and 1gb each. Any chance that's what you're exceeding?

The Searcher says:

Same question as above. What is the file size and duration of the videos you are trying to load?

Also, what uploader are you using.

There seems to be a problem when 3rd party uploaders are used. Some of them seem to have hard coded limits into the software.

No, I think most of the videos I'm trying to upload are very short. Less than 2 minutes.

I'm trying to upload my albums via iPhoto11

fluffy house says:

When I try and upload the same album via the web it says that about 50 of my pictures are not valid pictures. Everything in the album is either a video or picture, so really confused by that error message.

MachooPeechu:

It could be the video format. Have you tried exporting from iphoto to a separate folder, then uploading through the Upload page?
