I'm having an issue uploading video and have done so multiple times, changed the format, made the video shorter, etc. and still it is giving me issues. I want to talk to someone at IMDB to help me with this issue. Troubleshooting on my own is not working.

Thanks for confirming that info, Brigid!

Can you also confirm the error message you're receiving, and describe at what point the error message appears?

Also, would you be able to provide us with a link to a copy of the demo reel file(s) via Dropbox, so we can investigate further?

Hi Claire,

Sure. The error message I'm receiving happens after everything has been fully uploaded and appears to be fine. It says something like "We recommend you delete this and start over" and something else like "There has been an error with your video."

I can send via dropbox. What is your account that I should send it to?

Thanks,
Brigid

Hi Brigid,

You should be able to provide a shareable link to the video file on Dropbox, rather than sharing to a specific account.

If you'd prefer not to share the video file publicly here on Get Satisfaction, you're welcome to instead use our contact form here to share it with our support team privately.

Thanks,
Claire

I shared a dropbox link but it was deleted. I don't know how to share it with you with the link Steve provided... There is no option to upload a video.
