  • Updated 2 months ago
Up-loader does not upload anymore. My account has plenty of room. Cockles cleared and browser up to date.

Problem: used to be that I would click "upload" select a file and a % complete AJAX spool would indicate the upload was working,

the console.log shows errors and the upload does not complete. please examine the web browser upload feature.

Error from Console:
[Deprecation] Synchronous XMLHttpRequest on the main thread is deprecated because of its detrimental effects to the end user's experience. For more help, check https://xhr.spec.whatwg.org/.

Expected result: select a file, upload starts.

Windows Chrome:
Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)

NOTE: the SSL cert for Screencast seems to have expired? HTTPS does not load for www.screencast.com/users/ anymore, says "not secure"

Christian,

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble using the web uploader on Screencast.com. I am on the same build of Chrome as you are but I am unable to reproduce the issue that you are seeing. I also see the deprecation warning in the Chrome console, but it is for an unrelated script and should not be from the web uploader.

Do you see any error in the web uploader window itself? Uploads that have failed should be highlighted in red with a message stating why it failed. If not, are you sure the upload has failed? It's possible it is simply going slow and the progress hasn't updated yet. You should be able to check the Chrome dev tools network tab to check that the web request is still pending rather than failed.

I am not seeing any issue with Screencast over HTTPS and Chrome reports the site as secure. That could explain your upload issues, as the web uploader will only upload over HTTPS. Are you using any kind of software that's proxying your network requests to Screencast.com?
