Original issue: wordpress-mobile/WordPress-iOS#1792

In the last major version of the app, we added a new media picker to the editor (for uploading images), but we disabled video uploads because they weren't working very well.

In #1779 @koke added support for a new REST API for media. We should be able to use this to do a better job of video uploads (edit: backend still needs work though). We can then re-enable the ability to select videos in the media picker.

Some other, possibly related issues that could get fixed along the way: wordpress-mobile/WordPress-iOS#1628 wordpress-mobile/WordPress-iOS#433

  • Re-enable the ability to select videos
  • Use new REST API for media if possible; XML-RPC fallback
  • Check other video-related issues

Current punch list:

  • Refactor the UI/UX to show video upload and processing progress. #602
  • Determine the endgame of wordpress-mobile/wpxmlrpc#12
  • Resolve some of the errors I am still seeing when uploading videos on 4G/LTE.

Thanks @mgarza1812!

As of right now, the new, visual editor is our highest priority. We are anticipating releasing that in the next month or so. As soon as that is released and stable, we are going to attack all things media...including videos!

@JiRybar Right now the new WYSWYG editor is our #1 priority. It has taken longer than we originally planned, however the latest builds are looking very good and we are rolling it out to select users in the 4.6 release.

We are planning on shipping updates for the media picker (which should include video) in the 4.8 or 4.9 iOS release (Early Q1 2015). Obviously I cannot make any firm guarantees here, but this is our plan.

When are you planning to add video back to this app? Theres been nothing about it for months and a year has almost past since the feature was removed. Not moaning (yes ok a bit) - just asking! Its not like video is less important nowadays - tell vine!, lets move with the times guys!
