Amazon Studios Upload - 10.8.5 - Safari - Firefox - Mac

After several hours of hair-pulling-out activity, I was able to successfully upload a video to Amazon Studios using Firefox 25.0 (how's that for a version number) and Java 7 Release 45.

Here are some combinations THAT DO NOT WORK:

  • Safari and 10.8.5
  • Safari and 10.6.8
  • Firefox and 10.6.8

In theory, the Safari upload should work, but the Java plug-in is unable to enumerate the list of movie files in my home folder (where it has read permissions).

Hopefully this will save many directors hours of angst!
