Uploading video and Encoding videos are completely different processes.
- Uploading purely depends upon your internet speed (Please refer to uploading video is slow) article for more.
- Encoding is done in batches. Once uploaded the content will be in the queue for encoding. Typically it takes 4 hrs or even less during normal traffic.
- If a lot of files have been uploaded at the same time, then it may take some more time to encode and transcode. The entire process is automated.
- There is no manual process to shorten the encoding time. You will receive a mail each time the encoding process is done.
