Wondering why your video’s taking so long to upload and process? What’s a normal time frame? How to speed it up?

Upload Time

There are lots of factors that can affect your upload time. From your internet bandwidth & speed and how many people are using your internet connection, to things at the browser level such as extensions, settings, firewalls, or anti-virus software… all of these will affect your upload time.

If the uploading seems to be taking a long time, try compressing it with Handbrake

Processing Time

Once your video is uploaded, then it needs to process.

The time it takes to process is dependent on how big your file is, and how many files our servers are currently uploading.

So, the bottom line is, there are lots of factors that affect the timing of getting your video uploaded, processed and ready to go!
