Unnamed waterfall along the Pine Mountain Trail

@manton @cheesemaker I uploaded this via the latest Sunlit, and it appears that in the process of resizing, Sunlit added that black bar on the left side of the video :-(

Also, I would have expected a video+title to display inline in the timeline just like photo(s)+title do; is there a reason that was not extended to support videos (and does that mean photos+video+title also won’t display inline in the Timeline)?

@smokey Was the video edited in another app before uploading? I've never seen the black bar problem... The video does appear correctly in the timeline for me, though, just like a photo.

@manton I used the “Encode Media” Shortcuts block to get the video from a Live Photo, but the result of that is normal-looking video file.

I’ve edited the post to have title-as-post-text+video and a title that gets stripped out in order to make it display inline; prior to that, the Timeline had displayed the post title and a link instead.

@manton FYI, here’s the video file output from Shortcuts that I selected in Sunlit.

@smokey Thanks, it was very helpful to have this file. Fixed for the next round of app updates later this week.

@manton sorry to bug you directly, I sent an email off to help, but situation has worsened. I just upgraded my micro.blog account so I could post videos, but now am getting the "Your hosted microblog has expired. Please upgrade to continue posting to your site. Thanks for supporting Micro.blog!" message.
