My video is "uploaded".  Yet it has not been processed.   YT says to "refresh" the page.  What does that mean?  It's been + 24 hours already.

my latest video i add snow particles, when i finished the render and watched it locally it looked brilliant, but when i posted to youtube a lot of data was lost, making the video look really pixelated when the particles become more intense. anyone know a way around this?

Hi, this question is not exactly about processing, but you seem like you really understand you tube, so i hope you can help me. I sent a comment to someone. I never received any replies from that comment, but when i listened to the song again, i saw a little blue number 3 next to reply by my comment. What does that mean? Thank You very much. p.s. The processing video is very well-explained!
Hi MKBHD, Very useful, thanks. Great work. Nick

The *thumbs down* , under comments, used to show numbered hits...then it changed to take away from the thumbs up hits, (on comments), now it doesn't do shit...way to go YouTube...fucking bad format as usual! Should have left our formats like they were 9 years ago! When YOUTUBE formats kicked ass! YOUTUBE kicked ass over any site 9 years ago....slowly it became controlled and not what their viewers wanted...then they sold out to bigbrother! Then it became *THEIRTUBE*

blueredgreenroses (1 year ago)
Thanks! Really puts things in perspective for me! For the record it really is impressive how we have reached 2160P on YouTube, never realized I was watching content at 2160! . I have only just uploaded my first video but when you started changing the quality's I was in awe! 2160P is crystal clear its amazing.

thx man you help me
Love your video! We have uploaded a video from my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. It says 100% uploaded but never starts processing. We've cleared the cache on my Samsung and have the latest update and it still won't start processing. Do you have advice on what to do?
