    Default Help on image config for media files...

    I need some assistance here please.

    What i am trying to do is to upload a MP4 clip that is about 2mb in size using the media manager in my shop.

    I keep on getting this message Warning: File is larger than allowed sizes. See Image configuration settings.

    So, from the message i need to goto the image configuration to change settings.

    When i get to image config i cannot see anything that relates to media files?

    Am i missing something here ?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I haven't used this before but I think Configuration > Maximum Values > Maximum File Upload Size is the setting you need to change. Currently defaults to 2048000 which is 2MB

    Thank you so much. i didnt even think to look in that location.

    I managed to change the size of the MP4 file and the upload was successful.

    Thank you for your help.

    Also check your site's upload_max_filesize, viewable via Tools->Server/Version Info. You'll need to search for that value, it's towards the bottom of the Core PHP settings.

    The actual value used for your upload-files' maximum size will be the minimum of the Zen Cart configuration setting mentioned by @simon1066 and this PHP setting.

    It's really a better choice to choose a video hosting service - YouTube, Vimeo, and many others can host and display video better than your own hosting service.
