  • Using google chrome browser Version 95.0.4638.54 go to [[ URL | ]]
  • Upload the needed video normally on that website
  • after waiting for the whole process, from rendering, into converting, then adding to commons, at the last step the error is produced:

"An exception occurred: TypeError: b"'NoneType' object has no attribute 'getitem'""

Maybe something changed on the mediawiki api and our outdated pywikibot can't handle it? Logs indicate the error started in the last couple of days. First error entry in 2021-10-26 22:05:27,717

rPWBCc0cf17c196ca: [mw 1.37] Fix for removed action API token parameters was the fix included in pywikibot 6.6.1; however, pywikibot hasn't supported python2 since 3.0.20200703.

yeah, let me see if I can get python3 working on the backend

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2021-10-28T17:25:28Z] <chicocvenancio> move enconding04 to python3 T294520

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2021-10-28T17:49:50Z] <chicocvenancio> move encoding05 and encoding06 to python3 T294520

This error should be fixed with the upgrade to python3.

@Chicocvenancio New bug had reached as I tried now.

  1. Using Chrome or Firefox I received this bug:

An exception occurred: AttributeError: b"'bytes' object has no attribute 'encode'"

The steps: the same steps as before but in the error has resulted directly.

Aklapper renamed this task from Error with video2commons Tool to Error with video2commons: Error type: b"'NoneType' object has no attribute '__getitem__'".Oct 28 2021, 8:38 PM
