Generally most of the hosting companies restrict the upload size between 4 MB to 8 MB in your server. However, we have some options through which we can increase the maximum upload size.

Option 1

You can overwrite the php settings by using php.ini in your domain root directory. Open notepad and paste the below code and save the file as php.ini file.
safe_mode = off;
file_uploads = on;
session.cache_expire = 4000000000;
upload_max_filesize = 1000M;
post_max_size = 1010M;
max_execution_time = 40000000;
max_input_time = 40000000;
memory_limit = 1010M;
If it does not work, you may try by placing the php.ini file in your directory which executes upload process.

Option 2

If your server administrator restricted the usage of php.ini then you may overwrite php settings using .htaccess file. Open notepad and paste the below code and save the file as ".htaccess" file and place it in the domain root directory.
php_flag safe_mode off
php_value max_execution_time 1000
php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 14000
php_value output_buffering on
php_value upload_max_filesize 104857600
php_value post_max_size 104857600
php_flag display_errors off
If both the above options does not work, then you may need to ask your server administrator for increasing file upload size.

For Video files greater than 50 MB, we would strongly recommend to upload them to your server via FTP Client and use Direct URL method of AllVideoShare to add them to the component.

For IIS 7 webservers. You need to add another option if they get a 404 error when uploading.


update the web.config file, in the root of your web folder. My file looks something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <configuration>
        <system.webServer>
            <defaultDocument>
                <files>
                    <clear />
                    <add value="index.cfm" />
                </files>
            </defaultDocument>
       </system.webServer>
    </configuration>

and add the following node :
<security>
             <requestFiltering>
                 <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="524288000"/>
             </requestFiltering>
         </security>

And now it looks like this :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <configuration>
     <system.webServer>
         <defaultDocument>
             <files>
                 <clear />
                 <add value="index.cfm" />
             </files>
         </defaultDocument>
         <security>
             <requestFiltering>
                 <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="524288000"/>
             </requestFiltering>
         </security>
     </system.webServer>
 </configuration>

That’s it. The upload starts to work again.

I have Joomla running on a MS Server 2012 Standard edition.
It is using mysql as the database

I am getting the 404 error when uploading video files. I make a small video file less than a meg and it works great. MP4 format

I tried loading the <security> routine that was suggested. Didn't help

any other ideas?

RodS,

Kindly mail me your Joomla! admin and Server FTP details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to troubleshoot the issue directly.

Alternatively, You can also use a FTP client and upload your videos manually to your server to any directory and just use "Direct URL" method from the video admin as explained in allvideoshare.mrvinoth.com/forum/7-addin...ezilla-ftp-uploading

Helo,
I have used ftp to upload videos and when I hit apply after seting all the fields in the "Add Video" form the screen freezes and nothing happens.

When I try to upload had the same problem.
