Fae added a comment to T266117: Frequent chunk-too-small errors.

I think a better workaround, if it works, is to use source_url in site.upload().
It delegates to API the task of fetching the file. If it works, the file is hopefully the original.

As my 'personal' work-around, just for UK legislation PDFs that the API flags with chunk-too-small and fails on a second upload, the pdf is trimmed of the final byte and re-attempted. In my view this is a terrible hack rather than a fix.

Fae added a comment to T254459: Large PDF upload issue.

As a separate experiment, here's the results of locally saving a 264MB PDF from archive.org, then running the site.upload from a command line instead of within Python. Local directory names trimmed for privacy but have no logical effect. This was a meaningful experiment as a work-around could have been to locally cache the largest files and url upload the rest, however it seems to have no effect on outcomes.

Fae added a comment to T254459: Large PDF upload issue.

My understanding is that by Pywikibot automatically using chunked upload as a default means that "smart clients to chunk the upload, and we re-assemble it on the server side" was how this worked. Checking Pywikibot's site.py module, this links to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Upload#Chunked_uploading to explain how it works.

Sticking the upload script inside an infinite loop, allowing the upload to break on any first API error seems a practical but bad brute-force work around. However this is incredibly slow, wasteful of processing time and bandwidth, and not a solution for the vast majority for Commons contributors.

Some of these files do eventually upload, but they are not flagged as such, and the API appears to keep on with the 'retrying' loop. The example below is IA_catalogoftitleen33018libr which seems to have taken 48 minutes to actually upload, though the process keeps running for another hour before generating a (technically correct) error that the file now exists on the WMF servers, because the same process actually managed to complete some time before.

Seven examples of this tiffinfo parsing failure are available at Uploads by Fæ which fail to display. These were recently put up for speedy deletion, but actually this still appears to be an old WMF server failure that still needs to be fixed, as re-uploading the TIFFs still leads to the indefinite hanging of the upload at the WMF side.

In the meantime, it would be really useful to find a definition of the throttle limits for the service. If we are given a service level guide, like "20 video information queries in an hour", then at least it may be possible to manage our own queue and avoid IP blocks if we stay within it, or reliably farm out the queue if that is an acceptable practice.

When Wikimedia Commons generates alternate transcodes (e.g. converting a WebM audio/video file, VP9/Opus, length 20 s, 1,080 × 1,080 pixels to a smaller VP9 360P version) different tags are created for the file, which drops several of the standard Matroska entries.

Fae added a comment to T236446: Cloud Services shared IP (static NAT for external communications) often rate limited by YouTube for video downloads.

@Phamhi good suggestion. Have not managed to get it to work so far. The Python script drops out without warning, even though I guess in theory the shell should behave in an identical way.

By coincidence I (using Faebot) have been trying to run my CDC videos uploads from labs. The standard use of youtube-dl works directly from a terminal session, but when run on the grid engine I start getting

WARNING: unable to download video info webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests

or the fatal (the youtube id is just a real example)

youtube_dl.utils.DownloadError: ERROR: fWET2kNwdn8: YouTube said: Unable to extract video data

After 24 hours of "outage", the exact same sources are now uploading. Nothing has changed with my account or upload scripts, so something must have changed operationally.

Connectivity from where to where? The direct URL upload does not even touch my client end, so I have no idea what can be checked.
