No longer able to upload videos

For the last few days I have been unable to schedule videos on hootsuite. When I try it keeps saying "Unable to upload media. Check your internet connection and try again". However, when I try to schedule a pic it has no issues. 

Also, Instagram has stopped allowing video schedules.

    Hi @Sorina_B  

    I just tried this and it didn't work. 

    I still got the same error.
  • Hi @hootguy,

    Can you also confirm that your video meets the specific requirements for the social network in question? For more details, visit this link:  

    Please let us know if this helps!
  • It does and I have posted this same kind of vids several times in the past. 

  • @Ximena_M,

    Unfortunately, that didn't work. 

    I will like to emphasize that this is for the app and not the desktop. 
  • I am having the same problem, I schedule the video, and when it´s time to upload, it says to check my internet connection. I´ve uploaded videos with the same specs, and didn´t have problems before. I´ts kind of annoying. Hope you can help. Thanks
