I’m seeing an HTTP 200 error when uploading my zip file. How do I fix that?

This appears to be a pretty common issue with WordPress uploads. Here’s a few forum discussions:

Many customers have solved the problem by installing this WordPress plugin:

Here’s another potential solution to fix the issue from the server side:


Paid and free version have the same problem

Riding on the wave created by the generosity of WordPress who created the need and market for a plugin like this and the success of Learndash and Articulate, the author feels entitled to sell the plugin to for $169 annually for up to five sites. Embeds only work properly full-width pages. One would think a plugin (or better a simple interface) in this price range would enable you to embed content properly on regular posts with sidebars and full-width pages. After playing around with different settings, I decided that it's not possible to make it work for desktop and mobile devices without a user experience killing scrollbar. I'm actively searching for a different solution and hope someone will develop a different plugin soon or WordPress will allow the links in their regular embed-function.

Easy to work with – great customer service

It is super easy to upload - in my case - Camtasia videos. I am most impressed by the customer service. I had an issue finding out to use the plugin together with Elementor, which I wrote. Within a few hours I got a mail and a video instruction on how to. Great!
