I uploaded a video to create a video hub yesterday, and it is still "formatting" almost 24 hours later. My other videos have formatted a bit faster than this one - is there a problem with the video formatting process, or am I just being a tad impatient?
Whenever I upload a video, by the time I finish fixing the hub I would get an email stating that it is finished processing.
Maybe there is a glitch or the file type is giving some trouble. Hopefully a staff member will see this and tell you what's up.
Thanks, Cardisa and lobobrandon. I sent an email to the team, so we'll see if there is a glitch. I'll try to upload it again - it still says: "Video is still being processed. Please be patient.” It has been over 24 hours now, so something is definitely amiss!
No, it is the same type of movie (.wmv created in windows live movie maker).
My last video took quite some time to format, too, but not this long. I wonder if it has to do with the size of the video file? It is certainly within the allowed parameters.
I just want to publish my video hub (which has a text component, too), but I can't without a video! I'm trying a second upload attempt.
It is 275MB... I can't remember what the video limits are. I wonder if that could be the problem?
No way it isn't
The limit is 1GB and my video was 400+ MB. From next time I won't save in High Performance it was too big for a 5 minute video
Now that is a big file for a 5 minute video! I bet it looked really spiffy, though!
lol what do you save the video as? I saved it as a High definition - using movie maker itself.
I saved this one as high definition, but the video is fairly short (2 minutes and 12 seconds). 275MB for a 2 minute long video, lol - I will probably try saving it with a lower quality setting for longer movies.
This is my third one, and it does take less time as you get used to the program. I have the second attempt "processing" right now - hopefully this one will upload AND format, lol!
It worked! The first attempt is still "processing" but the second one formatted in a normal amount of time. Must have been a glitch the first time around!

I don't often moan but even I am getting a bit fed up of the 'waiting' period. I thought it was 24 hours? I have recently published a hub that, by the time the ads come up, everybody who is going to read it has read it, in other words any chance of ad clicks has disappeared. Please can you either...

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...
