Video media type not working

Hello everyone,

I have initialized a new instance on and want to serve our conference's ([]) videos and slides from it; but when I tried to upload videos, it's not working.

First of all, I just added video media type and uploaded a demo video, but it stuck on "Processing" step. Then, I changed my mediagoblin.ini like this:

available_resolutions = 144p,240p,360p,480p,720p,1080p
default_resolution = 1080p
mime_types = video/webm, video/ogg, video/mp4, audio/ogg, application/ogg, application/x-annodex
container_formats = Matroska, Ogg, ISO MP4/M4A 
video_codecs = VP8 video, VP9 video, Theora, H.264, H.264 / AVC, MPEG-4 video
audio_codecs = Vorbis, MPEG-4 AAC audio
dimensions_match = false

But nothing changed. But I wanted to add media via {{{bin/gmg addmedia}} because I want to add ~20 GB of video. If I use this tool, video will appear on the site, but Video.js is not working and <source> tag is not exist on <video> block.

If I tried to reprocess a video that I uploaded via web with {{{bin/gmg reprocess}} I got this error:

WARNING:mediagoblin.processing:No idea what happened here, but it failed: TypeError("main_task() got multiple values for argument 'medium_size'",)

  File "/srv/", line 374, in trace_task
    R = retval = fun(*args, **kwargs)
TypeError: main_task() got multiple values for argument 'medium_size'

I need to serve this videos, what should I do?

I fixed it temporarily by changing {{{mediagoblin/templates/mediagoblin/media_displays/video.html}} file as :

    {# for each_media_path in all_media_path #}
    <source src="{{ }}"
            {% if media.media_data %}
              type="{{ media.media_data.source_type() }}"
            {% else %}
              type="{{ media.media_manager['default_webm_type'] }}"
            {% endif %}
            label="{{ all_media_path }}" res="{{ all_media_path }}" />
    {# endfor #}
