Unable to upload video to peertube

I’m trying to upload .mov video, but I get “upload failed, server encountered an error”. I see that the format should be compatible. I also tried to convert to mp4, but it didn’t work as well.

Dot mov sounds like Apple. Maybe the conversion to mp4 was not going well ? Is avi an option ? VLC can convert file formats I’ve read (I almost never needed this but I think I’ve used ffmpeg).

Yes, I recorded with an iphone.

That might be it, I used kdenlive to convert, but perhaps its problematic to use that program for converting.

Maybe it is a codec issue. Can you try this ? https://mrcoles.com/convert-mov-mp4-ffmpeg/

ffmpeg -i my-video.mov -vcodec h264 -acodec mp2 my-video.mp4

I tried to upload on another peertube instance as well with the same message. But I could try that though.
