The Video Upload Wizard Needs Work

We've seen a few reports of problems uploading a video, since that option was added to Post Editor.
Please contact Support, and include the following information:
Blog Id:bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
Video Id:vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
or possibly even
Please contact Support, and include the following information:
Blog Id:bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
Video Id:FAILED


Upon further investigation, sometimes by the blogger and other times by a helper in Blogger Help Forum, we may find that the video is too long (100M is the maximum length), the video is of the wrong format (only AVI, MPEG, QuickTime, Real and Windows Media are accepted), and in one case, the video was detected as copyrighted material and refused.

Apparently, the video upload process doesn't provide a lot of diagnostic information. Maybe that's one reason why the new Post Editor didn't include video upload, for a long time.
