This is really annoying. Ive made a few attempts to submit a 4k video to VB using their uploader. Within the upload box, there's a message that says: "Warning - Navigating away from this popup will stop your uploads." Okay fair enough. But sometimes I check back in about 20 minutes or an hour and this upload box has disappeared. So I have to start the whole upload process again from scratch. Ridiculous.

Does anyone else experience the same issue? Maybe I'll use their FTP service instead.

Gosh a weird thing has just happened. That blue bar that advances across the upload box (which indicates the progress of the upload) has suddenly shrunk back to the beginning and disappeared. Bizarre.

Edit: And now the blue bar has started again. And close to the same time, the same file had been transferring to SS via FTP and was over 20% and then dropped down to about 2%. Weird. Meanwhile the upload of that very same file at Pond 5 seems unaffected.

Update: And now Pond 5's uploader has disappeared. The website reverted back to my existing uploads with no sign of the new file that I had been uploading. I just hope Pond 5 uses FTP as well. I'm sick of these integrated website uploaders - they can't be trusted for large video files.

Ive just been dealt another savage blow. I checked Videoblocks again to see the progress of the upload and seems like the process has finished. A message is displayed which congratulates me for the successful upload and says that the video is now ready to be tagged etc. Problem is there's no sign of the video. Ive looked all over the site and it doesn't appear to be there. Gone.

My gosh, it's finally worked, despite all those setbacks. It took all day but my 4k video was successfully uploaded to Videoblocks and SS. I gave up on Pond 5 for the time being. I might try P5 again tomorrow.
