Uploading video from my phone?

Postby Amanda » Sun Jul 08, 2012 5:41 pm

I emailed the file to myself and the file extension in 3gp. The forum won't accept it. It plays using quicktime on my laptop. Anyone know a way to convert it to a file the forum can use? I tried to upload it to photobucket, but when I get to 35% uploaded, it stalls out.

I think only images can be uploaded on the forum. I'll find out though.

What kind of phone do you have Jen? Mine is a droid 2. I could try to walk through the steps. Basically there's the add a file button and I go to my gallery to find the pic. Text messaged pics added some steps. I had to save the picture, then I find it under files, sd card, messaging. But you have to do all of this through the full reply screen, not the quick reply at the bottom of a thread.

I can't upload photos using the iPhone... I can only see the mobile template and not the full web version!:(

I'm on a mobile template too, but at the bottom of each thread, on the right side there is a link that says "post a reply". It's above the quick reply box. That takes me to the full reply screen and I can add a file from there.
