I’ve finished a movie, and it is a wmv file. (I’m using Premiere to do this, by the way.) When I go to start, my documents, etc. and look at it, it is shown as a picture of the first frame of the movie. So I go to brickshelf, try to upload it, but it uploads to the very top and then stays there. Then, like, an hour later, i see an avi type file in my folder on brickshelf, which doesn’t work when I click on it. I even exported it into a quicktime version, and the same thing happened, only there was nothing in brickshelf at all. What the heck is going on?

is there a space in the file name?
brickshelf does not upload files that have spaces in the names

No spaces, caught me a few times too. Quite annoying.June 9, 2003 at 12:23 am #4667
no, i don’t see any spaces. and the quicktime version did go up, but nothign happens when i click on it. also, when i tried to export it using the advanced windows media, it says missing codec. What does that mean?
What I find the most odd about this is that I saved it as a .wmv, but when it finally got onto brickshelf, it was a .avi, which my computer won’t play for some reason. crud!

It means that you need to download/install the codec you choose (DIVX maybe?)June 9, 2003 at 3:07 am #4687
that is odd ive never had the issue before.
try deleting the past files of it on brickshelf and
uploading a new format.

That would be a problem.
If you uploaded a .WMV, and it saved as a .AVI,
it’s not coded as an .AVI, it’s just called one…
So you need to make sure it isn’t renamed .AVI.
Maybe .WMV isn’t supported? (I don’t know, I try to avoid it anyways)June 9, 2003 at 6:42 pm #4722
Have you tried right-clicking and then “save target as…”?
And then play the file you just downloaded from your harddisk. I believe it could have worked, but your Internet Explorer has some weird settings.

Wow. That’s wierd. I know that wmv works cuz all of my stuff on brickshelf is wmv. What I would do is delete all the stuff you tried to put on brickshelf then start over. Go back into premier and save it as a different name. Or if the original WMV works, open it in a different movie tool, such as windows movie maker, and save it again, as a different name.
