Thank you for the excellent code!

I have everything working perfectly in VS 2010 Visual Basic using your .DLL to upload a photo and get the photoid.

But, when I use the same code to upload a video, it does not seem to wait long enough to get the photoid and it moves on.

In Fiddler2 I can see that a response comes back from Flickr and it has the photoid in it AND the video does in fact get uploaded properly.

Question: What setting(s) need to be different to make it work when uploading a video vs. a photo??

Is there a wait/timeout setting? A video setting?

Thank you,




Found the HttpTimeout property and set it longer.

f.HttpTimeout = 100000

Have you tried setting the Flickr.HttpTimeout property?

Yes, thank you. Just modified my question before you answered. Sorry for the false alarm.
