Large tif upload from ChinaEdit

I want to upload many tif files of ancient Chinese paintings up tp 3 GB. While I can upload jpg files and smaller tif files without trouble, big tif files fails. Is there a way to do it? --維基小霸王 (talk) 14:36, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

You're probably looking for Help:Chunked upload. TommyG (talk) 17:31, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: There are known issues with uploads larger than 100MB. See this thread. You may need to request a Server-side upload for these. Xover (talk) 22:12, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
OK.--維基小霸王 (talk) 04:29, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: I looked at your files and find them to be extremely beautiful and important works (which is kind of logical regarding the subject). I would highly recommend that you add at least minimal information on each item in English (such as date, depicted object and artist), which is now hardly existent. This would make the files much more useful, as people will hardly include them in Wikipedia articles without having information thereon. Remember, there are almost only amateurs around here. Greetings, Pittigrilli (talk) 23:16, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
However, there is a huge amount of them so I can't do it for all... I will try to use wikidata item as author in future uploads.
I have problem in uploading big tifs. I need help. An experienced user has agreed to help but I don't know if it will work. If it doesn't work, I will ask here...--維基小霸王 (talk) 00:44, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: If it doesn't work out with the other experienced user, I will try to help you. In that case, I will need access to the files to download to my side and a list of the metadata. Inductiveload (talk) 18:31, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
@Inductiveload: Great! Have you tried uploading big files up to 3 GB?--維基小霸王 (talk) 04:01, 20 May 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: I'll be using Pywikibot in async chunked mode, which has certainly done > 1GB for me before. If you can point me to an example file, I'll give it a try and see how it goes. Inductiveload (talk) 04:20, 20 May 2021 (UTC)
@Inductiveload: Thanks. But baidu wangpan, the net drive I use, requires an paid account for fast downloading big files. I will set up one for you. It may take a bit time.--維基小霸王 (talk) 01:23, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: any progress on this? If you're struggling, another alternative might be to create a .torrent file and I can torrent them directly from you? Otherwise, if you can get access to Dropbox, I can give you a shared folder to upload to. You can email me with any private links.
In the meantime, I will also need the files' metadata to make the file descriptions. Inductiveload (talk) 08:30, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
@Inductiveload: I have sent you an email for download instructions. --維基小霸王 (talk) 13:24, 29 May 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: OK, so I have downloaded the demo file and tried to upload it (twice). While I can upload all the chunks now, the process still dies after several minutes of re-assembly with stashfailed: Could not store upload in the stash (UploadStashFileException): "An unknown error occurred in storage backend "local-swift-codfw".". I guess we might really be looking at a server-side upload. Inductiveload (talk) 22:15, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for trying! Can you tell me your downloading speed from Baidu Wangpan? --維基小霸王 (talk) 22:19, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: Looks pretty good: ~10MBps at the moment.
I started to upload some of the "Tianjin" files to the IA: https://archive.org/details/17_20210610_20210610_1808 (might be easier to hand them over for server-side upload that way). However, uploading to the IA is incredibly slow. I also don't have a filename -> info mapping, so I haven't been able to construct metadata for testing small file uploaded (possibly the smaller files are possible to upload). Inductiveload (talk) 01:21, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
May be we could reorganize the files before uploading?There are actually duplicated files.--維基小霸王 (talk) 08:00, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
@維基小霸王: Sure, all I need is a mapping from filename to metadata (artist, title, page number/side, that kind of thing). A spreadsheet will work, for example. 15:36, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
I will require a lot of work. I will tell you if it's ready.維基小霸王 (talk) 07:05, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

┌───┘
@維基小霸王, Inductiveload: Are you making progress on this? There have been some infrastructure changes that should partially alleviate the problems with large uploads, so some previously failed uploads may now succeed. And there is always the option of requesting server-side uploads, cf. the thread below. --Xover (talk) 08:41, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

@Midleading: Does it solve the large PDF upload issue?--維基小霸王 (talk) 06:47, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
Just retried one of the 1GB file, and the server throws <?xml version="1.0"?><api servedby="mw2308"><error code="internal_api_error_DBQueryError" info="[c937a5fa-bdcb-4fe3-93f6-82f358b045df] Caught exception of type Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError" errorclass="Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError" /></api> at me. --Midleading (talk) 04:03, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
Retried twice from the upload stash, the first time I was greeted by <?xml version="1.0"?><api servedby="mw2320"><error code="stashfailed" info="Could not read file "mwstore://local-swift-codfw/local-temp/a/ad/18gzwiwmdjg8.ugf3hz.6539091.pdf.0"." xml:space="preserve">See https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/api.php for API usage. Subscribe to the mediawiki-api-announce mailing list at &lt;https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/mediawiki-api-announce&gt; for notice of API deprecations and breaking changes.</error></api>. The second time no errors occurred, but the file created is broken with just 1 block of data.--Midleading (talk) 04:11, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
@Midleading / @維基小霸王: Yeah, aiui, that's the DB call crapping out with a timeout, essentially (the returned errors are generic and come from higher-level code). If you still can't sneak it in there during a slow period I think requesting a server-side upload is your only realistic option. Xover (talk) 08:56, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

Failure to upload large webm fileEdit

Hi,

I cannot complete the process of uploading a .webm of 2.9 GB using the standard Special:UploadWizard. The uploading part seems to work (it takes me about 2 hours to complete), but at the very end I get the error "The server did not respond within the expected time.". I tried with Firefox 88 and Chromium 91 on Ubuntu 20.04. What are my options? Is it worth it to try a command line tool (Commons:Command-line upload) or a desktop application (Commons:Upload_tools#Standalone_desktop_applications)? The file is in fact the product of the concatenation (via ffmpeg) of two .webm files (1.8 GB + 1.1 GB). Maybe I could upload these two files and some administrator could run ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i list.txt -c copy output.webm on the server?

Note: the .webm file is a video tutorial on how to contribute to Wikimedia Commons (in French).

--Mathieugp (talk) 15:02, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

UPDATE: @Jmabel: suggested it could be a timeout issue on the browser side. Is it worth looking into it in your opinion? --Mathieugp (talk) 15:11, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
It could be any one of a number of issues, but the long and short of it is that uploads over 100MB are currently broken. See this discussion and several Phabricator tickets. As I understand it the issue is architectural and requires rather invasive code surgery to fix. I think there is work happening there, but I haven't seen anyone actually detailing that anywhere so I could be wrong.
In the mean time, some uploads work at random times so you can just keep trying and it may go through eventually. If it absolutely won't go through you can request a server-side upload. Xover (talk) 16:16, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks @Xover:! If all else fails, I will do as you suggest and request a server-side upload. --Mathieugp (talk) 09:38, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
@Xover: So, I opened up a request for a server-side upload on phabricator yesterday (T284617). Hopefully I did it right and some generous soul will have time for me very soon. Thanks again for your help! --Mathieugp (talk) 12:44, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

┌─────────┘
Just to update on this for the archives: In T284617 Legoktm resolved this through server-side upload, and we now have two new excellent French-language tutorials for Wikimedia projects (File:Tutoriel - Wikimedia Commons.webm, File:Tutoriel - Wikisource.webm). Thank you for the help Legoktm; and thank you Mathieugp for making the tutorials! --Xover (talk) 08:32, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

Thanks to everyone who helped me! And don't miss the other excellent tutorial (File:Tutoriel - Wikipedia Partie1.webm) made by my colleague JBouchez during the same project. :-) --Mathieugp (talk) 01:51, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

Help with hand-coding SVGEdit

I'm trying to recreate File:Snooker ball yellow.png as an SVG, and while I'm pretty sure filling a circle with a radial gradient, or possibly overlapping several circles filled with radial gradients, is the way to go, I'm stuck on figuring out the details. If someone else wants to do this, or tell me how to do this, I would really appreciate it. —CalendulaAsteraceae (discusscontribs) 03:04, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi @CalendulaAsteraceae: This is a basic implementation using a radial gradient, stripped down from File:Red sphere shaded lightsource top right.svg:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd">
<svg
   width="100"
   height="100"
   viewBox="0 0 100 100"
   version="1.1"
   xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
   xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" >
  <defs>
    <linearGradient
       id="ballLinearGradient">
      <stop
         style="stop-color:#ff8080;"
         offset="0" />
      <stop
         offset="0.2"
         style="stop-color:#ff4040;" />
      <stop
         style="stop-color:#f00000;"
         offset="0.5" />
      <stop
         offset="0.8"
         style="stop-color:#b00000;" />
      <stop
         style="stop-color:#300000;"
         offset="1" />
    </linearGradient>
    <radialGradient
       xlink:href="#ballLinearGradient"
       id="ballRadialGradient"
       cx="0"
       cy="0"
       fx="0"
       fy="-25"
       r="80"
       gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse"
       />
  </defs>
  <ellipse
    style="fill:url(#ballRadialGradient);"
    cx="0"
    cy="0"
    rx="50"
    ry="50"
    transform="translate(50 50) rotate(20 0 0)"
   />
</svg>
You can tweak it a bit:
  • adjust the colors of the linearGradient stops (currently it is red)
  • adjust the angle in the rotation transform on the ellipse to move the "light source" around the ball (around a circle parallel to the screen)
  • adjust the distance of the gradient centre from the ball centre using the fy parameter (bigger is nearer the edge), which simulates moving the light source front-to-back
  • adjust the overall size of the gradient with r
Hope that helps. Inductiveload (talk) 17:18, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
@Inductiveload: That did help; thank you! —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk | contribs) 03:33, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Glitch uploading a webp fileEdit

What fonts does Wikimedia Commons support in SVGs?Edit

Hi all

I'm writing some guidance for SVGs to fix issues when unsupported fonts are used in graphs etc. However I can't find a list of fonts that Commons supports, is there one available somewhere?

Thanks

John Cummings (talk) 15:07, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

@John Cummings: You can see the list of supported SVG fonts for Wikimedia projects at c:User:JoKalliauer/fc-list and meta:SVG fonts.--Vulp❯❯❯here! 15:17, 9 July 2021 (UTC)
Vulphere thaks very much, is this list likely to be kept up to date or is it better to link people to [6] which I guess is the 'official' list (taken from the Phabricator task)? John Cummings (talk) 23:46, 9 July 2021 (UTC)
I think so, authoritative list at [7].--Vulp❯❯❯here! 02:55, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Bad Google cache of File:Edwin.jpgEdit

See EN:WP:Village_pump_(technical)#Odd_google_image_search_link_to_article. A Google image search for "Edwin J. McEnelly" loads a link to the enwiki article with an unrelated image of two men posing for a photo. It appears to be an old cache of File:Edwin.jpg, which has deleted versions here at Commons. Can someone verify that this image is in fact one of the older versions, and if there is a way to have the Google caching get rid of it? Home Lander (talk) 01:01, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

MediaWiki:-namespace changes not showing up in WatchlistEdit

Ok, this has got to be something dumb that I'm missing, but…

On my Special:Watchlist, edits to pages in the MediaWiki (+Talk) namespace are not showing up. Not even if I go into the filters and pick MediaWiki and MediaWiki Talk explicitly. I've trawled Special:Preferences and can't find any obvious knob there. The pages are definitely on my watchlist (I edited it to check), they're just not showing up on Special:Watchlist. I've never run into this on any other project (enWS, enWP, etc.).

What probably blindingly obvious thing am I missing? --Xover (talk) 13:02, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

Special:LstUsers linkingEdit

Hi, Does anyone know how I can wikilink this url: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListUsers?username=Davey2010&group=rollbacker&limit=1?,
My goal is to remove the rollbacker/filemover/patroller userboxes on my userpage and add a linked "verify" link next to the already added rollbacker/file/autop list but when I add [[Special:ListUsers?username=Davey2010&group=rollbacker&limit=1|verify]] it shows up as verify.
Many thanks, Kind Regards, –Davey2010Talk 11:45, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

@Davey2010: I think the best you can do with a wikilink is Special:ListUsers/rollbacker/Davey2010. But, of course, there's nothing preventing you from using an extlink and just styling it to look like a wikilink (there's even a template for that sitting around somewhere). To the web browser it's essentially the same thing. Xover (talk) 11:55, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi Xover, Ah thanks for that, I did try adding "&limit=1" to the end but no success although linking to it now works! :), I personally find external links to be tacky but I guess I might have to go with that, Many thanks for your help, Kind Regards, –Davey2010Talk 12:19, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Oh, and the styling template is {{plnk}}, which gives you: verify. But, yeah, I also much prefer actual wikilinks whenever possible. Xover (talk) 12:51, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi Xover, I ended up searching EN and then found Template:Plain link .... not knowing you had replied here :(, Ah well great minds think alike! ), Thanks for your help it's very much appreciated, Many thanks, Kind Regards, –Davey2010Talk 14:13, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
@Davey2010: Actually… Special:UserRights/Davey2010. Until recently, this special page was accessible only by bureaucrats and some other trusted groups, who can actually change user rights on this page, but now it can be viewed by anyone (of course without the ability to change groups). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 00:35, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi Tacsipacsi, Could either be thinking of EN or be thinking of a completely different but similiar page but I'm convinced I've seen this page before but years ago.... who knows, Anyway thanks, Warm Regards, –Davey2010Talk 10:53, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
@Davey2010: Okay, this “recently” was actually more than four and a half years ago. Previously I didn’t check the dates, just had a feeling that it was not so long ago—yes, compared to the nine years I’ve been around for… —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:57, 16 July 2021 (UTC)

file usage on Wikitech not shown?Edit

I noticed that Commons does not indicate when a file is in use on Wikitech. For example, File:Eqiadwmf 9045.jpg is displayed on Wikitech:Eqiad cluster, but its usage there is not shown on the Commons page. Is this intentional?

It might become an issue if a file used on Wikitech is nominated for deletion because it appears "unused." Ixfd64 (talk) 22:39, 16 July 2021 (UTC)

@Ixfd64 I wouldn't necessarily call it intentional, but it is expected. For stability reasons, Wikitech operates separately from the rest of the wikis in several areas. For that reason, Wikitech uses mw:InstantCommons instead of directly sharing the Commons database, and GlobalUsage doesn't work with InstantCommons. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 19:42, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
I see, thanks for the explanation. Perhaps it would be a good idea to add something this: "This file is used on Wikitech, but its usage does not appear on Commons for technical reasons. Please do not nominate it for deletion simply because it appears unused." Ixfd64 (talk) 00:29, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

Infobox language glitchEdit

I am currently experiencing some sort of odd problem where the infoboxes on files show up in Welsh. This is also happening on some licenses, if they have been transcluded into the Welsh language. Everything else on Commons such as the main interface and tools are in English, this is only happening to the infoboxes and licenses. I have attempted changing my user preferences multiple times, with no luck. There doesn't seem to be a mention of this on any of the community pages, so I presume it is only happening to me. Might someone help? Fry1989 eh? 17:05, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi Fry1989 this was also reported at Commons:Village_pump#Why_has_Welsh_appeared_and_how_do_I_remove_it? but presumably no one knows why it's in Welsh, Weirdly I don't this issue (yet!), –Davey2010Talk 17:10, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
The linked issue relates to the sidebar but I assume it's still the same issue ?, No idea sorry, –Davey2010Talk 17:16, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Oh, I apologise, I failed to spot it. Thank you for notifying me. I don't have any issues with the sidebar, just the infoboxes. But I would have to presume they are related. Fry1989 eh? 18:04, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi User:Fry1989, No need to apologise mate - You weren't to know it was reported so all's good :), You're welcome,
In your preferences (first page), scroll down to the language section - Does yours say "British English" or just "English" ?, If it says British Eng then change to just English and see if that fixes it, –Davey2010Talk 18:14, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
It is set to British English. It isn't a huge hindrance, just slightly annoying. I can alter my settings for now. Thanks. Fry1989 eh? 18:26, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Someone mistakenly put Welsh translations on British English pages on translatewiki.net, see phab:T286679. The wrong translations have already been deleted on translatewiki.net and now they’re waiting to be removed from Wikimedia wikis as well. I hope the removal will happen at latest with the weekly software update on Wednesday. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:05, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Sorry User:Fry1989 ignore everything I just said - Best to change back in case it's not fixed your issue or causes further unwanted issues,
Thanks Tacsipacsi, Well my next question was "How does one make such a big mess of translating" but I can only assume the translator misclicked something somewhere. Who knows. Thanks anyway. Warm Regards. –Davey2010Talk 20:32, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

CommonsDelinker queue orderEdit

What is the order in which CommonsDelinker processes commands? I was patrolling Category:Copyright violations and came across File:Элджей (cropped).jpg, which I planned to delete. However, it was used in many places so I wanted to replace them with an alternative image first. At 23:53 I issued a replace command to CommonsDelinker, which acknowledged it at 23:54. Thinking the job has been successfully queued (and thus would run before any delinking command), I proceeded to delete the image at 23:57. However, it seems like the two commands were run in random order: on itwiki it replaced the image, while on lvwiki it simply delinked it. -- King of ♥ 00:49, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Old pictures at loc.gov like below sometimes have *v.jpg and *u.tif without links, just *r.jpg, because it is "too popular", but my opinion is that someone at loc.gov just did not want anyone downloading it. Since the many of the links are canonical, it would be trivial to guess the higher quality image locations. This is another task, archiving the "hidden" images:
FOR any *r.jpg in loc.gov and commons.wikimedia.org DO
if no *v.jpg at commons.wikimedia.org
try canonical location of *v.jpg at loc.gov
if no *u.tif at commons.wikimedia.org
try canonical location of *u.tif at loc.gov

Hello,

I've noticed that something appears to be off with File:Nintendo-Color-TV-Game-Blockbreaker-FL.png. Is this just me, or is the image a 0x0 image currently? This file is used on a number of high visibility pages, such as the Wikipedia article for w:Nintendo.

Something weird going on with that file. I cropped 1 pixel on the width of the image using Croptool and that seems to have cleared up whatever bug was in the original file which prevented it being processed by the mediawiki software. Maybe someone with more access on the backend would be able to give more details what the problem consists of. TommyG (talk) 19:29, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Help with converting VOB filesEdit

Hello. I have a DVD that contains a public domain motion picture. I am trying to convert the unencrypted VOB files on the disk to a straight mpeg2 format. It should be possible to do the video conversion losslessly because the disc is encoded with mpeg2 video and ac3 audio. I have tried using ffmpeg like so:

ffmpeg -i "VTS_02_1.VOB" -c:v copy -c:a mp2 out.mpeg

The resulting file has numerous visual glitches, which are absent from the original. I find this odd, since I only reencoded the audio. The visual glitches do not show up when I set "-c:a copy", but this produces an unusable output (as mpeg2/ac3 is not widely supported). The visual glitches also do not occur when I reencode the video; I do not want to take this route, however, because it is lossy and produces a noticeable drop in quality at reasonable file sizes. I suspect that this may have something to do with the "Non-monotonous DTS in output stream" error messages that occur when I try to encode the video, but I've tried "-copyts", "-fflags +igndts", "-copytb", and "-use_wallclock_as_timestamps" to no avail. Any pointers would be much appreciated. Thank you.  Mysterymanblue  00:05, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Detect cross-wiki uploadsEdit

I would like to ask if it is possible for bots to detect and categorize cross-wiki uploads? Recently I noticed that there are quite a big amount of copyvio files (mostly pics of celebrities) which were cross-uploaded from vi.wikipedia. While I managed to find some of them, it's impossible to recognize them all as most of these files are either uncategorized or have meaningless names such as File:Z2511652560434 ffa39a0605517c7c8d0be79a8be03d6e.jpg. — LX | Talk 22:55, 31 July 2021 (UTC)

Do we have any "Youtube review" bot for the Template:Youtube CC-BY-like license?Edit

We have the {{Flickr review}} bot, but the Youtube license has not any bot to handle the review work. I consider that the Commons need the "Youtube reviewer" bot to do these jobs. This is Taiwania Justo speaking (Reception Room) 07:00, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

@Taiwania Justo: You would have to contact Eatcha about YouTubeReviewBot. 1989 (talk) 14:31, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

Alphabetische Sortierung von UnterkategorienEdit

Wer kann mir helfen? Ich habe ein paar Fotos kategorisiert, dazu die Category:Wohnmobilstellplatz Hochdonn neu angelegt. In der übergeodneten Kategorie Category:Motorhome stopovers in Germany erscheint diese dann aber in der Auflistung der Unterkategorien unter „W“. Die meisten anderen (allerdings nicht alle) erscheinen in alphabetischer Reihenfolge der Ortsnamen, das wäre in diesem Fall dann „H“. Wie kann man das beeinflussen? Danke im Voraus für Eure Hilfe. --Eduard47 (talk) 14:55, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

@Eduard47: Ist eigentlich nicht so schwer, wie Sie vielleicht denken. Alles was Sie machen müssen ist ein „H“ hinter der übergeodneten Kategorie hinzuzufügen. Sieht dann ungefähr so aus: [[Category:Motorhome stopovers in Germany|H]]. — LX | Talk 15:50, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
@Lệ Xuân: Das war wirklich nicht schwierig, gewusst wie. Dankeǃǃ --Eduard47 (talk) 16:13, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

Dezoomify imageEdit

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to download folio 74r of this work? It's the folio that shows two images in a frame, the top one being of top red eagles (one with a blue salmon in its claws) against a gold background. When I try to use dezoomify, it selects the first image from the panel on the left, i.e., the blank page labeled "Upper Cover". Thanks, --Usernameunique (talk) 17:53, 2 August 2021 (UTC)
