    Hello,

    I was able to change my max size of my file uploads in general to 30.00 MB under the System settings. My question is that when I try to upload a .mov file is that it error's out on me with  "Maximum request length exceeded" is there somewhere else that I need to change this value?
    I noticed that within the video library you can only upload .wmv files. Our company has many training files and they are all .mov files. Is there anyway that the library can allow upload of the .mov files ?

    Hi Heather,

    I suppose you set the upload size setting here:

    <system.webServer>
        <security>
            <requestFiltering>
                <requestLimitsmaxAllowedContentLength="40485760"></requestLimits>
            </requestFiltering>
        </security>
    </system.webServer>

    To allow the .mov extension go to Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Libraries -> Videos -> Allowed  file extensions. Add .mov, separated with a comma and recycle the app pool.

    Hi, I changed my setting here: 

    Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> System -> FilesModule

    Changed the value in here to allow what I want. But any videos I try to upload here

    no matter what size gets this error. I didn't change anything the web.config.

    Thanks

    Hi Heather,

    I went to Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Libraries -> Videos -> and set Allowed file extensions to ".wmv, .mov", then recycled the app pool and then I was able to successfully upload a 60 MB .mov file without any problems. I didn't increate the upload size anywhere. Could the problem come from some limitation in your hosting provider?

    Kind regards,
