Any possibility to fix this issue?

Thanks for your great help.

.mov is not a HTML5 standard format. It can not safely playback in every browser so it's not allowed. You'd need to use a file field to be able to upload it. Using .mov would likely only ever work in Safari and on Apple devices. See the below for supported HTML5 extensions.

developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Supported_media_formats

If your device can encode it to MP4 using one of the encodings listed on the above page then it will also work fine.

Thanks for you very quick answer :).

I have also tried to use "file" field to upload my ".mov" file but it doesn't work (it says "Please upload only zip, rar, doc, pdf, txt, xls," :(

Maybe I did it wrong.

Edit your file field and add the mov extension to the list of allowed extensions.
