When I to upload a video to facebook, it just sits there, like it's trying to upload

Details of the video
mp4 format
27.8MB
03:46 minutes

My Internet Speed is about 2000kbps
I'm using MAC OS X 10.6.8
I've tried with both Safari and Chrome internet browsers.

See the attached screenshot of what I see. I've let this go all night, and no progress shows on the progress indicator. On the bottom-left you can see it just says "Sending request to vupload.facebook.com"

Any suggestions on what to try?

OK. Now something else is happening. It's about a half hour later. See the screenshot. It's on a different URL now. facebook2

I mean to say, the comment "Sending request to vupload.facebook.com" no longer shows at the bottom left.

Do you have any security software running that might block the outbound file?

Can you try it from a different computer?

Hi. It turned out that facebook won't allow the file due to DRM.
