I cannot upload the .webm video format on WordPress. This is after adding: AddType video/webm .webm
into both: my .htaccess file (on the root folder of the WordPress installation) the mime type handler of our apache server (via our site cpanel)
As far as i remember, at first this message instantly gave me the error, it would even begin uploading it. Now it uploads it all the way and then while crunching, i get the error.
The error is
“1.webm” has failed to upload due to an error File type does not meet security guidelines. Try another.
Has anyone else had this problem?!
What's really peculiar is that another video format called ogv (Theora) was not being recognised in the html5 player, BUT it wasn't breaching security according to WordPress. So I added the mimetype to the apache (not via htaccess) and voila, it worked.
Also, the file actually 'Uploads', it 'Crunches' and then rejects the file, which is odd, surely WordPress would deduce it can't upload the file format by just checking which file format it is first?
