Why YouTube Video Stuck At Uploading Or Processing 0% To 100%?
It happens due to various causes. Some of the major are listed below:
Poor Internet Connection: If the internet connection which you are using is unstable or poor then you will encounter slow uploading/processing. For example, if you are uploading 4K video then it needs more bandwidth up to 20 Mbps to upload on YouTube.
YouTube Server Problem: Sometimes YouTube server goes down in certain regions which causes the uploading problem. Also, when lots of people upload videos at the same time then the server of YouTube gets slow and you face this error.
Problem With Video File: To upload videos on YouTube you need to take care of a few things.
- Video should be encoded with YouTube supported file formats.
- Some of the video formats consume more time to upload. To speed it up, YouTube suggests you to use recommended upload encoding settings. So, if you use an unsupported format then change the format of the video.
- It is obvious that large video will take a longer time to process or upload. So, you can compress it to improve processing/uploading speed.
Duplicate Video: If you are trying to upload a duplicate video then you will get stuck at the processing. So, delete the duplicate video or you can edit it and then try to upload it.
- Trademark Infringement.
- Copyright/Content Claim.
- Can’t upload. Your channel status or account settings currently don’t support uploads.
Exceeded Upload Limit: YouTube has a limit to upload videos in one day. This limit depends on your region, subscribers, channel quality, history, etc. So, when you reach the limit, you can receive an error message “Daily upload limit reached”. In this case, you need to wait 24 hours and then upload the video.
Other Reasons: If the video file is corrupted, or maybe your YouTube account is not verified. In case, if your account is not verified, then verify your account. See, the images below to verify account.
