Tips for videos taking a long time to upload or that are stuck during upload.
Uploading times vary depending on your file size, internet bandwidth, and upload traffic. Uploading can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. If your upload seems stuck, or is taking a long time, it may be due to:
- File type and size: Your video’s file type and video format determine its size. To make your uploads faster, encode your videos in one of these recommended formats.
- Slow internet connection: Search “Internet speed test” on any searching engine to check your internet connection. Slow or unstable internet connection is one of the main causes of slow uploads.
- Heavy uploads traffic: You might be uploading during a busy time. At some peak hours, your Internet Service Provider registers spikes of upload traffic and might take longer to upload your video to Youmaker.
- Resolution: Higher resolution videos take longer to upload. For instance, a 2K video will take longer to upload than a 1080p video.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, we recommend that you let your video finish uploading to Youmaker.
