However, complaints are continuously pouring in on the official YouTube forum. So it’s hard to conclude whether or not the fix works for all those who are affected.
ORIGINAL STORY BELOW:
Looks like YouTube editor’s never ending video processing is a bug known for the longest time. Reason being, YouTube users have been encountering this issue since 2011, till date.
This issue dates back to June 27, 2011 when it was reported for the first time. YouTube users who put editor to use complained that processing of the edited video was stuck in a never ending procedure for days. While publishing the video it never finished processing.
On October 18, 2011 Google’s employee claimed that the bug was temporarily fixed.
“I’m sorry about the editing delays. We had some editing processing issues over the weekend. This all seems to have cleared up this morning, and we’re looking into longer term fixes”.
On November 15, 2011 he further added
“We found a bug if a video takes more than a few hours to upload and fixed it. Bad news: You need to upload your video one more time. Sorry! Let me know if you still have issues uploading”.
There was no update after that.
The issue was resolved for some, but not all. Despite the escalating number of reported use-cases since 2011, Google did not bother addressing the ones troubled. A quick look at the Google Product forums relevant thread reveals that YouTube video editor’s processing problem continues to be reported even today.
We tried multiple times to reproduce the same by editing a 10 second video using YouTube editor. After completing the mentioned editing steps, video processing got stuck on 90% for hours, every time. It’s clear that processing does get stuck while using YouTube editor.
Those facing the aforementioned issue might have to wait for Google to acknowledge that the problem still awaits a fix. For more information, head to the source link below.
