Hi,

Chrome Version (type about:version into your omnibox): 28.0.1500.16
Operating System (Windows 7/8/Vista/XP, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS): iOS
Extensions (type Chrome:extensions into your omnibox): N/A

It seems that there is a bug in Chrome on iOS that prevents video files from being uploaded when the file inputs "multiple" attribute is specified (allowing selection of multiple files).

For example, here's a most simplistic HTML5 file upload form:

<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
<form method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="/upload">
<input type="file" name="thefile" multiple />
<input type="submit" value="Submit"/>
</form>
</body>
</html>

If you select a video and then submit the form, the video file uploaded will be zero bytes.

If you simply remove the multiple attribute, then you _can_ select a video, it will be compressed, and it will be uploaded successfully.

The form above (with the multiple attribute) works just fine in Safari under the same scenario (uploading a single video).

Is this a known bug?

Thanks!

You appear to have arrived in the wrong forum; this one is for discussing the forum itself. I shall move you. Not sure where to, but I'll find somewhere.
