    Video Beta Testers 

    Hey there – Do you have an iPhone 4 and a WordPress 3.0 self-hosted site? Feel like volunteering some time next week to help us beta test the new video feature in the upcoming 2.6 version of the app?

    We need 5 people who fit all of the above to help us do some final testing of the video feature that will debut in WordPress for iOS very soon. You’ll need to be able to test one build per day, starting Monday, and ending either Wednesday or Thursday.

    We’d like you to focus solely on recording and uploading video, and tell us what you think.

    If you think you’re up for it, leave a comment below. First five to reply will join the Beta Team as Video Testers.

      I’m game. Sounds fun. Anything to improve the mobile app.

      I’m already part of beta testers, and I can test videos if you need!

        That’s great! Have you logged in to the Beta Team P2 and installed the latest build on your iPhone 4?

    Bug reports – Anyone on the Beta Team having trouble submitting tickets in Trac? If so, you can just leave a report here as a comment.

      Heh! Is our trac login tied to our forum login? If not I don’t remember receiving an ID!

      Anyways, I did find a lot of bugs ranging from crashes whenever you upload a video to a WP.org site as well as the inability to scroll down to view more content after you write (scroll bar error perhaps?).

      Also whenever I try to change the post from local draft to publish it crashes too. Anything else you need info on? :-)

      • Chris Boyd 1:46 am on September 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Yep – Trac login is tied to your forum login. I just tried to reproduce the inability to scroll issue and couldn’t do it. Were you on Posts or Pages?

      • Chris Boyd 1:53 am on September 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Also, try adding this line to your root .htaccess file:

        php_value memory_limit 64M
    • Chris Boyd 1:35 am on September 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Darnell – How long was the video you uploaded? There’s some changes you may need to make to your .htaccess file on your WPorg site to get it to work.

      Definitely need to talk more about the crashes when it changes from Local Draft to Publish. Could you tell me any more?

      Can’t log into the forum or Trac…

      Anyways, the issue I’ve already noticed is image ratios on the iPad. You can see the obviously stretched image at http://suthdevtest.wordpress.com/

      Another thing is that after tapping on an image in the media tab to view it full screen, there’s no back button… it took me a moment to figure out the delete button did the equivalent.

      When adding an image to a page, there’s no Save button until I modify the text, which people might think means it’s already saved or just not know how to save. I don’t have this problem when adding an image to a regular post.

      And a couple other little things…

      Lots of crashes after dealing with media.

      It seems like you’re aware of this, but preview isn’t working for me. Using a WordPress.com blog with the TwentyTen theme. No message, just a blank page when I choose preview.

      Keep up the good work!

      One thing I have noticed. I just loaded up my blog, I know there is an article waiting to be published, but I don’t see it. The list of articles spans ALL articles now with no press to load more button, and no pending articles.

    • nazaroth 12:55 pm on September 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Ok please ignore my last post :/

      I do have another bug though, when writing an article, when the text gets to the bottom of the window, it will keep going but I am no longer able to see what I am writing and cannot scroll down to see.

    • nazaroth 1:18 pm on September 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Also after writing some text in a new article, if I then try to add some media, the “+” button is covered by the wordpress logo that shows auto saves, so I am unable to press the “+” button.

      Odd. I thought I’d subscribed to this thread?! I’ll check my spam box (sorry for the belated response).

      I’ll see about editing my .htcacess Chris, although I’ll be switching hosts in s month as my current one is slowing down.

      As far as posting goes, video uploads (regardless of size crash, and I am unable to scroll down within the app.

      I’ll see if I can reproduce these upon a WP.com site.
