I've tried to upload a video multiple times in 4k, and after waiting hours there still in no option for it. The video is just 2:30 in length and I've never had a problem like this on my previous uploads.
The video is currently set to private.

If it matters at all, this is the first video I'm uploading since being accepted into the Youtube Partner Program. Before it, I had no issues.

Well that's strange for me because all my other videos get the option within 1 hour

You’ve been extremely lucky. You must live in an area where that YT server gets few hits. Mine sometimes takes as long as 3 days.

I've had the same issue yesterday... it's been 10hours and in youtube studio it says SD and HD processing is done yet there is no 4K option. My original upload was in 4K 60FPS quicktime container with DNxHR codec. It's the first time i've had this issue. My video is also around 3 minutes ..

It’s too many of you complaining. That indicates a server is down and you probably all live in the same region.  Wouldn’t  worry about it if it’s showing complete. Takes anywhere from 2 min to 2 months for YT to replace a server.

I'm in France FYI, so I guess european servers.. I'll try uploading from the US with a VPN. After over 10hours of processing it now says HD processing complete yet the max resolution is 1080p...

Same problem, 2 videos in 4k are showing up as 1080p. 
"takes more time than usual" can not be right, I waited already 2 weeks...
