Stitched Videos Won't Upload to Facebook

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having this issue? For the life of me I cannot get the videos to upload to Facebook.

 

They ALWAYS get stuck in processing regardless whether I upload from the Stitch app, or taking the final file and uploading it.

 

So frustrating. Any advice would be appreciated.

I had some luck hitting the Youtube button, which saves the file, in my case as magic flat. I didn't export it to Youtube, I just used that file for Facebook, which it accepted on my normal feed. Otherwise, I had to start a page where I could get advanced video publishing options, but even then, the videos and stitching once in FB didn't look quite right. No idea why, I'm a noob, but try the Youtube file and see if that works.

For Facebook, the processing takes a while, so u just gotta be patient.

 

I too thought there was an issue with FB. The video would upload fine, then the processing bar screen would come up. It would move pretty quickly and seemed to stick about 98%. I would get frustrated waiting for 5-10 minutes with it being stuck. Closed the window and just thought something was wrong with the video.

 

So I tried again, and waited a bit longer. It took almost 20 minutes to process a 1 minute video. So make sure to just wait it out and don't close the processing screen, or the video will not complete.

Hello,

 

Per my experience, there were issues uploading videos to FB directly, because they had very odd supported video settings. That's why I converted all my videos with ffmpeg to be able to upload them. Now it seems that those video settings are corrected and I have no problem to upload the originals. https://www.facebook.com/facebookmedia/get-started/360

 

However, if you still experience problem you may convert your videos just to try - ffmpeg.exe -i source.mp4 -s 3072x1536 -vcodec libx264 -b 20480k -aspect 2:1 destination.mp4 (those were previous supported settings). Keep in mind that you'll lose quality of the picture.
