Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Multimedia and Commons/Allow video uploading from mobile

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Allow video uploading from mobile

  • Problem: Currently there's not a straightforward way of uploading video to Commons from a mobile phone, and we must rely on other tools to convert it to webm or ogv. This makes video uploading very far from user friendly.
  • Who would benefit: Video creators, Commons users and, lastly, Wikipedia readers, who could find more relevant videos on articles.
  • Proposed solution: Maybe merging the video2commons system into file uploading.
