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?
Hi @markthom sorry you are having this problem with the Cloud service.
If you are still experiencing this problem then please call the Cloud helpdesk on 0800 500 3114. They are open 9am-9pm Mon-Fri and to 6.30pm at the weekend.
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.
I'm sorry you're experiencing issues playing large files through your BT Cloud.
I've highlighted this to my colleagues in the Cloud team and they would like to get this investigated. They've asked if you could provide your details to help with the investigation?
