Uploading video and Encoding video both are completely different process.
- Uploading purely depends upon your internet speed (Please refer uploading video is slow) article for more.
- Encoding is done in batches. Once uploaded the content will be in queue for encoding. Typically it takes 4 hrs or even less during normal traffic.
- If 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.
