I have put a video uploader on my site and it is set to limit videos at 62MB as below.  However, I can upload videos at any size except videos over 8 MB.  What is limiting the size of the video to be uploaded? Is it the server?


$type = explode('.',$_FILES["file"]["name"]);
echo "Return Code: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"] . "<br />";
if ((( end($type) == "mpg")
|| (end($type) == "MPG")
|| (end($type) == "mpeg")
|| (end($type) == "MPEG")
|| (end($type) == "wmv")
|| (end($type) == "WMV"))
AND ($_FILES["file"]["size"] < 62000000))
  {
  if ($_FILES["file"]["error"] > 0)
    {
    echo "Return Code: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"] . "<br />";
    }
  else
    {
  //  echo "Upload: " . $_FILES["file"]["name"] . "<br />";
  //  echo "Type: " . end($type) . "<br />";
  //  echo "Size: " . ($_FILES["file"]["size"] / 1024) . " Kb<br />";
  //  echo "Temp file: " . $_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"] . "<br />";

   
      $new_name = time().rand(1,9999999).".".end($type);
      move_uploaded_file($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"],
      "upload/" . $new_name);
     
      //echo "Stored in: " . "upload/" . $new_name;
       $inserted= "INSERT INTO `ajax_chat_video` (id, filename, title, career, student ) VALUES (
       NULL,
       '".$new_name."',
       '".$_POST[video_title]."',
       '".$_POST[video_career]."',
       '".$_SESSION[id]."'
        )";
      // echo $inserted;
       $just = explode('.',$new_name);
       $sql = @mysql_query($inserted);
       $location = "/home/front/www/chat/upload/";  
       //$location = "upload/";  
       $command = "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i ".$location.$new_name." -deinterlace -ar 44100 -r 25 -qmin 7 -qmax 9 ".$location.$just[0].".flv";
      //     $ffmpeg = exec($command);

$last_line = system($command , $retval);
       
       //echo $last_line.'<br/><br/>'.$retval.'<br/><br/>'.$command.'<br/><br/>';
       
      // $command = "ls -lh";
      // echo exec($command);
       //$command = "ffmpeg -i ".$location.$new_name." -r 1  -t 00:00:10 -f image2 ".$location.$just[0].".png";;
       $command = "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i ".$location.$new_name." -an -ss 00:00:03 -an -r 1 -vframes 1 -y ".$location.$just[0]."%d.jpg";
       $ffmpeg = exec($command);
       
           
       //echo '<br/>'.$command.'<br/>';
       //echo '<br/>'.$ffmpeg.'<br/>';
      echo "The file has been uploaded!";
      }
   
  }else{
  echo "Invalid file, please try again. Type: ".end($type)." | Size: ".$_FILES["file"]["size"];
  }


//echo 'OK OK OK OK OK OK OK OK OK OK ';


?>

Yes it is your server, it is a PHP thing. These major directives in PHP.INI limit the size of uploads:

MEMORY_LIMIT
POST_MAX_SIZE
UPLOAD_MAX_FILESIZE

The first is the maximum memory that one php session can use - if you upload a file larger than this you will exceed the memory the session can use and it will fail.

The second one is the maximum size of the data in an HTTP form post. Since your form uses HTTP POST to submit the file, this limits the file size. Since the file is usually base64 encoded, this number is actually larger than the real limit - e.g. if it is set to 20MB, your actual real filesize is more like 10-15MB.

Last one is self explainatory

Other things that can cause a large file upload to fail is the IIS/Apache server directly limiting the size of a request header, and also if the script times out before all the data can be uploaded this can also interrupt a file upload and not let it complete.

Lots of good info on the subject in the link above.
