why'd he do the whole blurring thing to represent the resolutions instead of just scaling or pixelating the video?

My video is stuck at uploading without even showing the percentage. Please help!!

I wonder if they really transcode and transrate during "processing". They likely transrate and transcode on the fly when a user is streaming.

I just uploaded a video of more than 7 hours (78 GB). It took 9 hours to upload the video, 5 hours to process it and now I wait for 1080p. It is still 360p and I am waiting for 3 and a half hours now.

You rock! Question: Why is the quality of the YT vid better than my original (same res). Do they smooth out jitters in processing? The original jitters are most noticeable on the faster pans but YT fixes a lot of that.
The Telco's Fans (3 months ago)
And, youtube auto quality still 360p in my phone. Why not me can set 1080p by default?

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 video stuck at processing dont know why is it happening... Never happened before. My previous videos were uploaded without any problem. But now when trying to upload same video it is not processing again and again it is uploading...
patricia friedson (7 months ago)
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!

TheCultChick (10 months ago)
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*
