YouTube Tips and Tricks: Video stuck while uploading? Here is what you need to do
YouTube is fun! And serves a great educational purpose too. The platform provides a wide variety of content to its users of all age groups. In fact, you can find videos related to every beat and topic you want. There are several content creators who make and post these videos for you to access via their YouTube channel. You too can become a YouTube content creator. The only thing you need to do is to create your channel on the platform.
Then think of the video you want to create- make it, edit it and simply upload it. But there are instances when you face difficulty while uploading the videos. It can be noted that uploading times vary depending on your file size. The uploading time can also vary due to internet bandwidth and upload traffic. Uploading can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. Here are a few tips for videos taking a long time to upload or get stuck during upload mode.
If your YouTube video upload seems stuck, or is taking a long time, you can check the following:
1. File type and size: Your video’s file type and video format changes its size. To make your uploads faster, encode your videos in the formats recommended by YouTube. You can check the same by clicking here.
2. Slow internet connection: Search “Internet speed test” on Google to check your internet connection. Slow or unstable internet connection is one of the main causes of slow uploads.
3. Heavy upload traffic: You might be uploading during a busy time. At some peak hours, your internet service provider may register a spike in traffic and might take longer to upload your video to YouTube.
4. Quality: Higher quality videos take longer to upload. For instance, a 4K video will take longer to upload than a 1080p video.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, then it is better that you let your video finish uploading to YouTube. If you had to quit your upload for any reason, you have up to 24 hours to continue uploading where you left off. For doing so you can return to youtube.com/upload and select the same file from your computer to continue.
