I made several attempts to upload a video and had to bail to desktop to finish my post. The journey begins with an attempt to upload a 61 second video to a wordpress.comWordPress.com An online implementation of WordPress code that lets you immediately access a new WordPress environment to publish your content. WordPress.com is a private company owned by Automattic that hosts the largest multisite in the world. This is arguably the best place to start blogging if you have never touched WordPress before. https://wordpress.com/ hosted site.
The upload fails. I’m somewhat near the edge of my wifi range, so I move closer in and tap the retry overlay.
I tap retry upload and wait for the upload to complete. It also fails. So, I tap retry upload again and lock the phone because I have other stuff to do.
I come back later to this screen.
I backspace over that placeholder image and retry the upload once again. This time the upload hangs. I watch it for about ten minutes and then tap “Uploading…”. This dialog pops up.
Tapping Yes does not cancel the download. After a few more cancel attempts, I restart the app and come back to what looks like an uploaded, playable video. Playback stops one second in, however.
I was unable to backspace over that video, so I quite my edit session, deleted the draft, and published the video from a desktop.
