Video Uploading and Processing TImes

I am new to Panopto and really like the platform. I am likely to upgrade, but seem a bit concerned with lack of support and some functionality I need help with right from the start. So here I am...


I have recorded portions (5-10 minutes) of my presentation with powerpoint and video without problems. However, I finally did the whole presentation which exceeded an hour and after uploading, its status stuck in "processing" for well over 24 hours. I deleted it and rerecorded it (again video and powerpoint screensharing) and it is doing the same thing. What should be the turnaround on completion? Should I have just waiting longer than the 24 hours? Is there a setting issue or membership status issues that cause this?

Thank you!

    Hi Todd,

    I'm glad to hear that you really like Panopto so far! I hope your issue with your upload processing time has resolved. Sometimes, video processing takes longer due a video's length or overall quality. If there's still an issue with this, please let me know.
