Hi @Bmlcf, sorry to hear about this. 

What type of phone are you using? The 'person' icon would appear on iOS devices only, so most likely you're on an Android device.

Try tapping the three bars on the top left to view your options, tap Settings, and then Camera Uploads.

Let me know if 'Upload video' is enabled!

Thank you so much Jay.. had seen camera uploads was marked on, didn't think to click into it until i got your reply and you were right - video uploads was unticked! Will this automatically sync videos from previous 3 weeks?

Yes, it should, since the videos would be seen as 'new', since now they're allowed to upload.

Naturally, videos will take a little longer to upload when compared to images due to the file size, but assuming the WiFi connection is stable, it should complete successfully.

Keep me posted!
