Error " File is not a video. Sorry, your file was not uploaded" help


Recommended Posts

After running this, trying to upload a video from a mobile phone, I apparently don't have the php set for video?

Because I am unsuccessful in uploading and the message I see after attempting (from mobile phone) is:

"File is not a video Sorry, your file was not uploaded."


Any help/guidance suggestion will be appreciated.

Here's the code:

<form action="upload1.php method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"> 
Select image to upload: 
<input type="file" name="fileToUpload" id="fileToUpload" accept="video/*" capture> 
<input type="submit" value="Upload Image" name="submit"> 

And here is upload1.php code:

$target_dir = "uploads/";
$target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]);
$uploadOk = 1;
$imageFileType = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION);
// Check if image file is a actual image or fake image
if(isset($_POST["submit"])) {
    $check = getimagesize($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"]);
    if($check !== false) {
        echo "File is an image - " . $check["mime"] . ".";
        $uploadOk = 1;
    } else {
        echo "File is not a video";
        $uploadOk = 0;
// Check if file already exists
if (file_exists($target_file)) {
    echo "Sorry, file already exists.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
// Check file size
if ($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["size"] > 50000000) {
    echo "Sorry, your file is too large.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
// Allow certain file formats
if($imageFileType != "MP4" && $imageFileType != "MPEG4" && $imageFileType != "MOV"
&& $imageFileType != "OGG" ) {
    echo "Sorry, only MPEG4 & MP4 files are allowed.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
// Check if $uploadOk is set to 0 by an error
if ($uploadOk == 0) {
    echo "Sorry, your file was not uploaded.";
// if everything is ok, try to upload file
} else {
    if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"], $target_file)) {
        echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]). " has been uploaded.";
    } else {
        echo "Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.";
