After you submit your file for upload you will be taken to the Content page. From here you may view the progress of your upload.
Please note: the system may have a queue of files that it's
working on so it may take some time for your file to process.
When your upload is complete you will receive an email providing
you a link to your audio or video. Save this email. When you
first upload a audio or video file it will not be available for
public viewing. The link and embed code for the file will only be
in the email sent from the UB Stream system.
If your upload fails, you will also receive an email.
If your video is not in one of the supported formats listed above, and you cannot export to one of these formats, you may use Handbrake (PC, Mac, Linux) or Any Video Converter (Mac only), free video conversion programs available online.
This is not an error; if the encoding fails, you will receive an email letting you know.
5GB. See Your Storage Limit in UB Stream for more information.
On rare occasions some files will not be encoded by the system and you recieve an email to notify you.
This can be for a variety of reasons mainly to do with the audio and video codecs contained in your video file. We recommend trying to upload your video again.
