Uploading GP video from your DropBox Account
Just an option - maybe faster than doing it directly from your phone/other device

Just sharing info - if you already have a Dropbox account (or want to create a free one--includes 2GB of space), you can upload your video from your account to the Upload link.

I remember doing this last year with my GP video when I had trouble getting my video to upload directly from my PC via the upload link (was timing out, etc.,).

Benefits of uploading your video from your Dropbox account and then using the GP upload link:

1)  Faster

2) Confirmation of the upload.  You'll get a confirmation both in Dropbox itself as well as an email (whatever email you've got in your Dropbox account) that your file was sent to the GP account.

Attached instructions.

Another benefit of uploading from Dropbox:

If you’ve recorded with an iPad, iPhone, or Mac and your file format is .MOV, you can convert your file to .mp4 format using the Dropbox file conversion feature.  Do the format conversion as you upload from your system to Dropbox, and then upload your converted file from your Dropbox to Fiddlerman.

@Unfretted Yes!  Thank you for pointing this out.  I've just posted some instructions on how to set this up in the other thread where we've talked about the conversion thing smile
