The worst video uploader ever! Facebook video uploader

Since yesterday I have tried to upload a video to my OpenBeer Event Fan page on facebook 5 times! Each time I try to upload the same video, the uploader stops working about half way through. I have tried this with FireFox on the Mac and with Safari and the same thing happens over and over again… I uploaded my video to Youtube in one go without any troubles and I am just about ready to stop trying on facebook…

If it wasn’t for my organizational mania that is urging me to add this video in the VIDEOS section of my Fan page, I would settle with a simple link to my Youtube version… but I can’t stop! I will switch browsers and try uploading it this time from Chrome on my Mac. If this doesn’t work, I will try using IE8 on a windows machine and if that doesn’t work I will use FireFox on a Linux Mint installation I have. 

If all the above fail, then the facebook video uploaded must really suck big time!
Oh, by the way the video I am trying to upload is here

and the frozen screen I keep on getting from facebook is this one

    The video finally got uploaded!!!TIP: This is what happened! Even if the progress bar doesn’t work and you think that the uploader has stuck/frozen as any normal person would, don’t close your page or refresh or leave!!!Keep the page open and wait. Come back and check every so often at your FROZEN uploader (how user friendly) and after a long or short while depending on the size of your video, you will suddenly get a message that says that the video was uploaded!!!Best thing is to let it upload all night, then in the morning the video should be up!Cheers!
