There was an error and photos were not saved

norlightpress says:

Just uploaded my first video to FLICKR and can't add it to an existing album.

I get this message when I go to SAVE.

There was an error and photos were not saved: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

I had this problem before after creating the album and adding images to it. I got around it by creating a new album from scratch - but I don't want to do that this time.

What's going on?

Problem must have been temporary: I see several videos in OP’s album.
