It could be a few things.

Did you change:

max_post_size to 64mb

check your permissions to be sure that www-data or whatever apache/nginx runs under owns the files in the directory

make sure that wp-content/uploads is writeable
I am completed php.ini to 64 mb. Coming from a shared enivorment so some of this is new to me. Please explain or link to ways to resolve your other suggestions.

Did you restart Apache after modifying php.ini?
