    Hello all,

    I took several photos and videos yesterday and I can't seem to get the videos to upload to the iCloud photo library. Any ideas on why my photos would, but none of the videos?

    Thanks!

    May be a slow upload speed? Is there any error?

    No, no error message. Could be slow upload, but it's been almost 24 hours since I took them. How long should it take? (that's a serious question and no sarcasm)

    Do you have mobile data turned on? Over wifi depending on your upload speed it could take a while to upload.

    Yes, mobile data is on, but wifi is usually faster than the mobile data.

    That really depends on your provider having a nice fast connection speed is always slower on the upload speed unless you pay for specific service. For example my connection is 156 down 5 up.

    Yep. I agree. I'll just give it some more time. Maybe they'll show in time.

    From Apple's iCloud Photo Library FAQ http://support.apple.com/HT204264 (with my emphasis added):

    Interesting. Does that mean fully charged?

    More likely, "connected to charger," which is the way it is with iCloud backups. They just don't want you killing your battery while doing what may be a power-intensive task.

    Yeah I understand.

    The videos have shown up on my computer. I need to learn more patience. Sorry guys.
