    I enjoy all your videos and so I thought it'd be nice if I made one to add to my showcase so I can better follow the growth of my fish, because the pictures never come out that good....well that video is still "being processed" since last night, I was wondering if uploading videos always takes this long, or should I delete and try to re upload?
    Is youtube the only way to upload videos?

    Gemma,
    It depends on how long your video is and sometimes what you took it with.

    Mine take long if I edit them, or if they are coming off a data card instead of right off the laptop.

    Sounds like yours might be stuck in a loop. I have deleted some and restarted the upload.

    so I deleted and started a new upload but I'm still getting this message:
    "This is taking longer than expected. Your video has been queued and will be processed as soon as possible."


    The video is a little over 3 minutes long...I selected it from Google photos, is there any other way I could upload this video?

    A three minute long video should upload in a very short period of time - sounds like something else is going on.

    Can you upload directly from your computer?

    Could be a problem with your internet's upload speed, or maybe your internet isn't stable enough. I used to have a pretty bad internet service where things like that would happen often.

    The other video just does not want to upload, so I'm trying a shorter video directly from pc, it was windy and the quality isn't as good, but I can still see the fish ok

    now I'm getting this message: "Your videos will process faster if you encode into a streamable file format. " even after reading the Help Center, I have no idea what they want me to do so I guess I'll just have to wait for the slow upload

    If you login to your YouTube account on your PC you'll see a tiny Upload button at the top right of the screen that looks like an up arrow. Click that!

    ETA: Looks like you figured it out. Yeah don't worry about that message. It just means it will take a bit longer.

    Yes this video does work, it was the first one I tried to upload that I was having trouble with and ended up giving up
    What do you mean by "something wrong at 0:13 onward till 1:27"?
    other than poor quality and the fish too far away do you see any other issue?
