We've implemented chunked uploading, and are able to upload video files over 100mb in chunks to Cloudinary. We're doing this using an unsigned preset with no transformations just to test the entire process of uploading and then playing the video through the Cloudinary player.
After the upload is complete we use the id that is returned and attempt to embed the video via the Cloudinary player. We receive the noted error:
My first question is why do we receive this error when we have no requested transformations? I can see a "View derived videos" button in our media gallery, and I see that for our smaller videos a webm version was created. Is there a transformation happening behind that scenes that is independent of the preset?
My next question is how to resolve this. I've experimented with turning "Eager Async" on at the preset level with no success. I've tried to pass "eager_async" in as part of the requests, but that is not allowed when using an unsigned preset.
If anyone is able to point me in the right direction that would be great!
