Sorry that’s happening! Although video processing shouldn't take longer than a few hours, there are a few reasons why your video might be stuck in the upload process, these could be:
- Too large of a file: If the file is too large, it could take a long time to upload. To fix this, try encoding your videos one of these recommended formats. For example, if you try to upload 1GB video file with 512kbps uplink speed, it may take over 4 hours to upload.
- Your internet connection: Slow or unstable internet can make it tough to upload videos. Or, you may be trying to upload during peak hours. Tip: you can make a simple diagnostic by running a speedtest and see if the internet connection is having issues with the upload speed.
- Resolution: Higher resolution videos can take longer to upload. Note that long high resolution and FPS videos (for example, 1080p@60fps and 4k@60fps) may take longer to upload and also longer to process.
If it’s been more than 8 hours, you may want to remove the video and upload it again.
