    I have tried this "answer" multiple times but my uploads continue to fail. I have large video files anywhere from 3-7 GB that I need to upload from my phone. My employer and I mirror the frustration of the OP. Yes, the uploads work fine from a desktop web browser interface but I need to be able to do it from my phone and it has yet to work.  My colleague literally turned off the screen lock and left the app open for 2 days only to have the upload fail. Uploads have been attempted from various iPhones (12, 13 & 14) all with the latest iOS and the latest version of the app. 

    If there is another way to upload from a phone without using the buggy app - let me know.

    I am having trouble uploading video and photo's, and also tried this solution to no avail. Has there been another way to fix this? I need this part of the prgram to work for my job, every day.

    Same issue here, I had to try to re upload the photos and videos several times. Why does the issue persist?
