UPDATE: New features include increased upload size!

The maximum file size increase went into effect Monday afternoon and we are starting to see large videos coming in. For example, on Wednesday Lynwood36 posted this 400mb full HD video: Double Rainbow Pigeon Forge.


In some browsers the old upload size limit gets cached. Most people will not have a problem with this but to be sure you should clear your browser cache before uploading a file larger than 200mb.

Hey iReportland,
We quietly rolled out a few new features yesterday we want to make sure you to know about.


Facebook Recommend widgets have been added to CNN iReport assignment and profile pages. Now you can quickly share projects like Track the Oil Disaster and recommend your favorite iReport users with your Facebook friends.


You can also share bigger and higher-quality photos and video on CNN iReport. The maximum file upload size tripled from 200MB to 600MB. Yay!


Finally, you’ll notice we’ve drastically improved the quality of images (up to 2048x1536) when viewing pictures fullscreen, making images like this Italian sunset even more stunning.


We hope you’ll enjoy these new features. As always we’d love to hear your feedback.

Your friends at Team iReport.

I just tried to upload (or download) a video that is 220 MB, it took 1 1/2 hrs.   I just see it failed, just like it did when I tried it three times on the 4th of July.  SO, your upgrade doesn't seem to be working.

Hmmm...the file size maximum upload was 100mb even tho' it was listed as 200mb. So that means that either the file size is six times bigger or it's only 300mb and will be listed as 600mb. LOL


Teasing aside, I'm thrilled because video files can be so big and it's painful having to edit down to 100mb as had been the case. Thanks, Tyson and iReport team.


Like Melissa, I do wonder if anything can be done about the upload time as that is a big issue. A 100mb video can take over an hour to upload and I have a fast computer.

Just checked out the full screen photo resolution and was blown away. Photos now look amazing with no pixelation that I can see. Nice job!

I am so happy, I could yell and jump up and down.  I am very unhappy that CNN Ireports chose to not cover most of the ireported Gay Pride celebrations around the country.

As astute iReporters have noticed, the switch to a 600mb upload limit didn't get activated as advertised. We'll get it working this week I promise!

I would like to appeal to the nationalist of this country  who still believe in being fairminded,and morally just.We all can learn from the Sherrod fiasco;Judge Bolton courageous,and conscientious decision on the Arizona bill,sb1070,on the passing of President Obama health initiative;just to name a few.Our business should be about the business of the nation collectively for the good of the whole,and not pitted against each other and marred down in divisive ideology,and labels and used by some aristocratic political or personal agenda,or some group cause that only benefit a few,and put the majority,or disadvantaged at a even a greater disadvantage,or those who would use inner dissention as a weapon to destroy us from within. As a democratic country, we must realize that together we stand ,and divided we fall;les we remember the downfall of the great Roman Empire. We must try harder to find ways to be together than apart. To some it does not matter,because they have world agendas for influrence and afflurence,and the rest of us are merely puns to that end,and then some would lend themselves to the ignorances and biases that placate unfairness,and moral corruption. Everyone want jobs,and to have a piece of the American dream for themselves and their children and grand,but some want the world at the expense of others,their children and grandchildren,and even at the expense of there no longer being an America.There must be a renaissance of nationalism as there were in the first and second world wars where everyone worked,and sacrificed together for the common good;sometimes it is better to exercise patience,or work with than to just complain.This is real patriotism,and being an American.
