Problem Adding Video

  1. I am now using the Wordpress Blackberry App on my Storm phone. All functions work except 1. When trying to add video (new or from library) I get an error that reads "Blog Message (code 500) Could not write file XXXXX.3pg (invalid file type)"

    As I mentioned all other functions are working: Photo Upload, Add Post, Etc.

    Anyone with some insight please help. I noticed that 3pg is now supported but this does not seem to be the case.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks,

  2. WordPress has a built in list of file extensions that map to specific mime types. It will only allow uploads for file types (extensions/mime types) that it understands. .3pg is not in the default list.

    Try this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pjw-mime-config/ that allows you to add file extensions and mime types to WordPress. I believe the correct mime type is video/3gpp for .3pg. Hopefully if I'm incorrect someone will post the correct type.

  3. @josephscott - Thanks a million. Works like a charm.
