Cannot view uploaded videos in Youtube
#1 Submitted: Wed, 18/12/2013 - 08:21

Hello! I uploaded a video to Youtube, it did upload but Youtube shows this message:
Failed (unable to convert video file)

So I cannot view the video at all.
I was using iPad air, iOS 7.0.4.

Any idea what is wrong?
I tried two times, both videos are showing the same message.

could be a upload problem and it could be the fact that youtube has gone to a content id system that could hold your video back from being played at all. just saying goto your manager in youtube and see what the flag on it says.

This is taken from the Video manager. Otherwise I cannot see the viedo at all.

"Alert icon

Im not any in way a support person for youtube, I was merely trying to help, but looks like it failed, but you can delete it and try and reupload ?. In any case you should see if the video actually still plays via your phone or device and go from there.

Hey Shane, i know this probably isn't any of my business, but did Stainless also get affected by the youtube ID system because of the song by fear factory used in the kickstarter gameplay video?
