WPTV: Add progress indicator to upload page

Reported by: JerrySarcastic Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordPress.tv Keywords: needs-patch


Currently when someone tries to submit a video to WordPress.tv (at http://wordpress.tv/submit-video) we don't show any kind of feedback that we are uploading a file, and only show a success message once the file has been uploaded

Is it possible to add a status indicator, like the load bars we show in the the Media Library when initiating an upload? Because the files uploaded to wptv are so large (~1GB) a lot of time can pass before a file is uploaded. If something goes wrong with the upload (and we never show a success message) the user has no idea what the status of their upload is.

Agreed, this sucks. Maybe we can use Core's uploader, and get the progress indicator for free. I'm open to other suggestions too.

Consider plUpload that is already in core since 3.9 (https://make.wordpress.org/core/2014/04/11/plupload-2-x-in-wordpress-3-9/), probably JS-based so supports resuming.
Also think of removing the 1GB limit.
