Hive Social has emerged as one of the most popular micro-blogging platforms for a number of users ever since Elon Musk took control of Twitter.

The platform has gained a lot of popularity owing to its features that somehow mirror that of Instagram and Tumblr. However, it is also frequented by various bugs and issues.

For instance, it recently showed an error while loading the followers/following list for some users. It even got stuck on the gray screen of death a little while ago.

Hive Social not uploading videos

Some Hive Social users (1,2,3,4,5,6) have now taken to Twitter to report an issue where they are unable to upload videos on the platform.


Hi, are there any restrictions for posting videos? Video format, maximum length, or something? I’m trying to post a video and it won’t publish.

Were videos disabled from being uploaded? They won’t show up on Android, but figured it couldn’t hurt to ask.

Whenever users try to post a video, it gets stuck where it shows a rainbow-colored circle that’s constantly whirling. It shows that it is processing but never actually accomplishes the task.

The issue only seems to be limited to uploading videos as users have been able to upload pictures as usual.

It is incredibly frustrating for affected users as they are being prevented from sharing videos. For reference, you can check out an image attached below:
