Something wrong with "Film & Animation" category

GWKTM Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2018  Hobbyist Filmographer
I tried to upload a sneak peek video as MP4 and WMV, but DA won't let it through. When I choose Film & Animation category, it complains "Only video files allowed". That's exactly what I'm uploading! Why doesn't it still accept it? Unfixed bug?

If anybody else have succesfully uploaded video files in DA, I'll be glad to hear how.

Pretty much what H-SWilliams said.

They're crazily strict with video uploads here for some reason :V

You need an invite or have applied and be approved to get film privileges.
I'm not sure what the film category says or does if you try to upload without them.

If you've got film privileges, I'd probably report it as a bug.
If you don't, you can try applying for them, though I'm not sure how active they are these days on processing applications. I've heard some people complain before they've never heard back.

I thought it was just me. Tried to upload a video a couple months but never seen go through.

I had the same problem ages ago and simply abandoned the entire endeavour. It's a shame they still haven't fixed anything and made uploading vids easier.
