Why is my YouTube video upload not processing?

You have created an interesting video to share on your YouTube channel and now to your disappointment, the upload process is stuck at 95% of processing. Waiting hours for your video to upload on YouTube is an unpleasant and annoying experience.
So, if you too have been facing the same issues of your video being stuck at 0% or 95% of processing, we are here to help you. Know what are possible scenarios and how to deal with them in the following parts of the article.
How to solve this problem?
The time of video processing and upload on YouTube depends on several factors like the size of the video, quality, internet speed, traffic on the site at the time of video upload, and others. If the size of your video is large, the upload time will be longer, and that may be the reason some people use YouTube video size reducers. Moreover, video in high quality and resolution also takes longer processing and uploading time.
So, if you have uploaded a video from iPhone or other devices, and it is stuck with the processing and uploading try the following solutions.


Method 1. Close the page and upload it again

If your video is stuck for more than 8 hours, it is advisable to delete the video, close the page and try uploading it again.

Method 2: Check your Internet connection

One of the most common reasons for your video being stuck at the processing and uploading stage is the slow or unstable internet connection. Additionally, if your video is large in size and of high quality, a slow connection further makes the process longer. If you are uploading your videos at peak hours when the traffic is large, processing and uploading might get stuck. Thus, it is advisable to go through a diagnostic by running the speed test on your system to check if the connection is fine or not. You can also avoid the peak hours for uploading your file.


Method 3: Use YouTube recommend format

To avoid issues with your video upload and processing, it is better to use the YouTube recommended format and encoding settings. YouTube recommends using an MP4 container with AAC-LC audio codec and H.264 video codec. Complete details about the encoding settings can be checked from the link: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171 .
