We'd like this to upload some video files that were recorded for Wikimania...

brion set Security to None.

"It's not already?" = Probably should do it right away

So we got this config merged but there's some sort of http permissions error :(

Thanks a lot for merging this so quickly! I am looking into the user agent thing now, will ask the IA people if they could allow ours.

Reopened, as this currently doesn't work.

What error message do you have when you try an upload per URL?

@Yann Please reopen the issue with two information needed to go on: (i) the procedure you've followed (Glamtools? Special:Upload?), the URL you've tried, the weight of this file (*) and finally the exact error message you've got.

Please note the whitelisting of a domain doesn't mean large files won't timeout

Trying from (300 MB) gives "HTTP request timed out."

Is this limited to 100 MB?
It says "Maximum file size: 1,000 MB (your chosen file from a valid, publicly accessible and whitelisted URL)."

Yann added a comment.Nov 17 2015, 6:45 PM

Above is with Special:Upload and Source URL.

I've experienced the same with *, sometimes a 200 Mb file is okay, sometimes it timeouts.

Okay, so let's consider works well on the whitelist, and open on a new issue for this.
