BT Cloud - Error playing large video files

Hi, I have read several posts about issues uploading large files to BT Cloud but my problem is not uploading them it is playing them after they have uploaded. I am using the cloud app on my iPhone and/or the cloud website on my Mac, on the iPhone I get an error message 'could not play video' and for the same video on the cloud website I get a more meaningful error message of 'File XXX is too big to be playable'. 

I have uploaded several different sized videso and the tipping point seems to be between 250mb-350mb, a lot of my home videos are 500mb+ so this is a real problem for me.

BT can you shed any light on this? I dont want to be breaking apart some of these videos just to get them to play, they upload ok?

thanks, Mark.

Re: BT Cloud - Error playing large video files

I raised this issue with the helpdesk & the answer was that BT engineers are aware of an existing issue playing video files over 300Mb but I have been unable to get an answer as to progress & resolution, are you able to help with this please? Also, I dont know if all the large files already uploaded will just start playing when the fix is in place or whether I will need to upload them all again.

Mark.

I'm guessing you've not managed to get this resolved yet? Very annoying....

Not heard a thing which is disappointing as all I’m asking for is a fix date being as the problem has been identified.

BT are you able to update the community?

I'm sorry you're experiencing issues playing large files through your BT Cloud.

I have sent you a private message with instructions on how to contact me. You can access your messages via the envelope icon at the top right of the screen, or click on this link, Private messages
