Uploading more than 500 photos doesn't work correctly by Mapillary Uploader (Desktop Uploader)

I’m uploading a lot of GEO tagged 360-degree photos using Mapillary Uploader (Desktop Uploader).

However, the uploader causes a malfunction before reaching 500 sheets.
If I retry it, it may be able to proceed.

However, if I get the error “Folder Already Uploaded” when I retry, I can no longer upload photos in that folder by continuing it.
In that case, I will delete all the huge logs, rename the folder and try the upload process again.

If I retry several times, I may be able to upload more than 500 sheets.
After that, it is often going well, but the operation slows down a little every 500 sheets, so I think that special processing is performed every 500 sheets in the server.
Even if the upload process finally reaches the last photo, I might still get the error “Something went wrong”.

Mapillary has a strict check for duplicate uploaded data from this spring, so I think it doesn’t matter how many times I retry it.

Also, since the same time that the check was implemented, there have been many problems such as not being able to see the uploaded photos.

And when it detects duplicate photos, Mapillary will send me emails like this:
“Mapillary images or videos you tried to import failed - duplicate image file(s) detected”
But until Mapillary Uploader can handle more than 500 photos successfully, I’ll put up with these annoying emails.

In the environment I mainly use, the internet line is an optical fiber, and it can be up to 100 Mbps or more, so there is no problem with the line.

Hi, @Richlv
Is this symptom similar to yours in the article below?

I’m using the commandline mapillary_tools.
With them I sometimes see images skipped, without failures being recorded, tools hanging and other issues.
The symptoms seem different from what you are experiencing, though (and it’s a different tool as well).

Did you download the uploader executable recently, or is it months old? I had a similar issue with 999 photos but the latest version fixed it for me. https://www.mapillary.com/desktop-uploader

Thank you.
It was a long time ago that I did the download operation.
I will try to download it again.
By the way, do you know how to find out which version of Mapillary Uploader I am currently using?
Or do I have to judge by the date of download to know the version?

Hello, if you go to the .exe file (On Windows: “C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Programs\mapillary-desktop-uploader\Mapillary Uploader.exe”) then rick click it, go to properties, then to details you should see it.

Did you have success?

Yes, I was able to know the version that way.
Thank you very much.

However, although I was able to upload yesterday, I can’t sign in today.
I don’t think it has anything to do with checking the version of the uploader, but it happened at the same time, so I’ll report it here.
