Major issues uploading videos

I'm wondering if anybody else is having the same issues uploading videos to Video & Media?

I have tried 5 or 6 different times over the past week to upload videos with 4 completely different videos and they are all coming up within a few minutes
saying the video has been removed
No explanation given and no notification as to why they have been removed.

At first It didn't bother me I saw something similar when I first uploaded videos I had to give it a few minutes but now it goes on like that for a few hours and one video I posted and left over night was removed again with no notification or explanation. They cant all be violating the terms?
Take this one for example

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance



mod edit: to convert imbeded video to link because it attempted to load the video every 1/2 second possibly hurting media@ats site performance.

Was it your video, or one that you had copyright to? On ATS you can't just put up other people's videos like they do on youtube.

What was the format of the video?

We're using a collection of tried-and-true open source solutions for converting video into FLV format, but there are some source videos that work better than others.

Overall, anything in Quicktime format works best... WMV works well, AVI not so well, MP4 is unpredictable. But even some compression codecs in Quicktime are problematic.

Your best bet, for the ultimate highest quality, is to convert your videos to FLV before uploading. Short of that, use standard compression codecs in your videos.

There has been no alteration to the servers.

If possible, can you email me the FLV file so I can take a look? u2u me for my email address.

Have just tried to upload an flv 4 times and each time it does it, and says video uploaded correctly on upload page before taking to an SQL error as below

MySQL Query Error: INSERT INTO error_logs (error_title,error_msg,error_date) VALUES('','','')

SQL error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
SQL error code: 2002

I solved mine by removing some software my girlfriends teenage son installed on firefox while I was at work. Then he took off to Canada on a trip with his Grandmother and didn't bother to tell me.

So I'm holding his Brand new airsoft rifle hostage " Nice Rifle"
