"Sorry, but the file you provided is empty."

I’m getting this weird issue. Whenever I try to upload a screenshot, I get this message: “Sorry, but the file you provided is empty.”

I can’t upload a screenshot, because you know…

I am using an Android 9 Umidigi F1, on a Chrome Canary browser. I use the PWA or Progressive Web App, however can replicate on other browsers and such. Restart does not help either.


Is this limited to a certain screenshot or do all screenshots/photos you try to upload give you this error?

What format is the file you are attempting to upload?

All of them.

When do you get that message. Right after selecting the file or when you post the message?

Right after selecting it.

Have you tried a different file or does it happen with all files?

So it happens with Chrome and PWA? What happens if you download the Discourse app and try it with that?

All files. I’ll try as soon as possible.


Alright, it works with the Discourse app. Thanks, Chris!
