Using on (MediaWiki 1.21alpha) I don't get a "broken image" icon anymore when uploading this OGV file, but instead the preview is just black.

Also see bug 28810.

Andre, what browser/version did you test this with? Images should be extracted on the client now if possible. Some files have seeking issues and result in a black frame.

Jan: Firefox 15.0.1 or 16.0.1 (updated yesterday but cannot remember when exactly) on Fedora 16.

Tried again the steps in comment 7 (Uploading ogv file to ) and I see a thumbnail already while still uploading, so for me this is FIXED.

Tauhida: Could you also verify that the problem is fixed, and reopen this bug report in case that you can still reproduce this?

Asking as the fix should have been deployed to *Commons* on October 31st according to and . As written before, it works for me on
