Support » Fixing WordPress » can’t upload video file

  • Hi there,

    I can’t seem to upload video files into my media library.
    The file is mp4 and is only 89mb. It just seems to stop, and an error message comes up: “http error” is the only message I get.

    How can I find out what the problem is, and how could I resolve it.

    Thanks in advance

    By default, maximum upload size in WordPress ranges from 2MB to 150MB depending on the settings of your web hosting provider is giving by default. You need to increase media upload size. Please refer the link how to increase media upload size by different process.


    ‘Only’ 89MB is not ‘only’. Multiple things can cause this issue to happen.

    – upload_max_filesize can be set to a lower value, which is most likely.
    – max_execution_time can be set to a value which is too low to do the uplaod in the first place.

    You should think about if you really want that video to be locally placed and if you don’t want to use an video service like Vimeo, Youtube, …

    You might also be running out of space under your hosting plan. I strongly suggest hosting the video elsewhere (e.g., youtube).
