Google Video Uploader Needs Proxy Auth Support
January 24, 2007 3 Comments
I want to use Google Video pretty extensively at work. I went back and forth with their support, and still nothing. So, why not whine about it on my blog?
Google Video Uploader does not offer me a way to upload my videos because I work in Government. We want to add City Commission Meetings to the web, but… since I cannot connect (our connection requires Proxy Authentication) no dice.
How hard is it to add Proxy Auth to a friggin program? Really… I have a SOCKS 5 proxy that requires username and password auth on a specific port. Maybe I should post a list of programs out there that are made on shoestring budgets that offer Proxy authentication.
Here’s a screenshot of the implementation in Google Talk, in case you’re interested:
Arg. FIX IT ALREADY!
