    Hey guys,

    Has anyone ever encountered this using the bulk uploader? I tried to upload some videos in the same manner as i always do, same file formats etc. what happens is the first video gets to 99%, stalls for about 3 secons then comes up saying '99% file error'.

    None of the subsequent videos upload either as it gets stalled on the first video. Anyone know what can be causing this? I use hidemyip software but this has always worked fine in the past, I've also tried both IE and FF, same result with both.

    None of you guys ever came accross this? It's really pissin me off, I can't upload a single video. I've only found one thread about it in google also and there's no real answers in it either. If nobody knows I'll have to go to youtube directly :(

    really strange.
    i have often similar problem and its that movie in mass upload stops to get uploaded at 0%, despite my connection running without any problem - i have often experienced it on all 4 computers i use (several different connections)
    the biggest problem with it is, when you filled out all fields for 10 movies and then second movie stop whole uploading process with 0% - it would be good from google to give us "retry" button for files who dont get upload for some technical reasons :). i know they have this feature in single file video upload.

    Hey thanks for the reply Jesus, I wasn't aware there was a new (or old) bulk uploader. How do I go about using the old one?

    Yeah know what you mean, I had lined up 18 different videos, filled out title, descriptions, keywords... just to be have the first video fuck up so that was like 20 minutes wasted.

    Don't fill in the descriptions or keywords till after the upload.

    Have had this happen in the past, due to too much info in the description within the bulk uploader interface.

    in mass upload you need to fill all info before upload, otherwise it wont be uploaded.

    I'll try and cut down the info in these fields and see if that solves the problem. One thing I was doing was using loads of keywords, more thah I usually do, so maybe that could have had something to do with it if these kind of things can effect the upload.

    Thanks, I'll keep yous posted.
