Large Media uninstall please

Please uninstall the Large Media service on my site. The lack of support for video in iOS is a major flaw in the service and will not work for most of my projects because iOS is such a large source of traffic. The API id is

Thank you very much for your help.

Hey there, @kylepfeeley :wave:

Thanks for letting us know you want to uninstall the Large Media add-on for your site. Would you please confirm you have read the following Support Guide?

If you have read that, please confirm you have backups of all files and that we should proceed with removing the Large Media add-on.

Hi hillary, thank you. I have back ups off all my files, have read the guide and you can proceed with removing the Large Media add-on.

We have removed the Large Media add-on from the site now.

Would you please push the commit removing .lfsconfig to the upstream repository? This will trigger a new build.

Please keep in mind that you might want to run the command below after deleting the .lfsconfig file:

git lfs push --all origin

This will sync the local repo’s LFS objects with the Git LFS service at the original Git host. It pushes any new binary blobs to their LFS service. This is especially important if there are any files have been added or modified during the time the LFS service was moved to Large Media (and does nothing at all if nothing changed during that time).

Please let us know if there are any issues with the new build or deployed site.
