Netlify CMS Media uploader API error on large(ish) files


I have a site that’s working great with Netlify CMS, except one of the upload fields includes video files. They aren’t very big, under 20megs so also under Github’s “large media” threshold, but either way (with large media or not) we are getting this error:

Uploads work fine for smaller images, so I’m wondering if there’s a setting I have missed that would let us upload these 15-20mb files with the admin?
