I've changed it back to where the media file goes last and I still get that error so if anybody has an idea of what I'm doing wrong there I would appreciate it.

I've discovered the same thing, it seems TwitVid is doing some weird
manual parsing of variables and/or HTTP headers and everything needs
to be exactly spaced as they would expect it.

I had to tweak almost everything that works for other services to get
it to work with TwitVid.

I'm part of the TwitterVB library project. Part of my effort is to write
an object that encapsulates a connection to TwitVid.com  I'm currently
testing the upload function but am having problems:

              End Try
              Return Upload

          End Function

Calling this function gives me this error:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rsp stat="fail">

<err code="1002" msg="No file specified to upload" />
</rsp>

if anybody has any ideas I'd appreciate it (note I've put the file on
the front and in the back. Both return the same error).
