How Long Does It Take To Process A YouTube Video!

Have you ever wanted to know how long it takes to process a YouTube video? This article will give you an idea of how much time is needed and the best practices for processing your videos. 

Processing time varies depending on the size of your video, but it can take up to 2 hours (or more) for a Full HD 1080p video that’s 30 minutes or longer in duration.

If you’re uploading a few short clips from your phone, this could be done in about 10-20 minutes.

The length of processing also depends on whether or not you have any other programs running during the rendering process – so if possible, try not to run any other CPU intensive application at the same time.

How To Reduce Video Processing Time

VideoReDo recommends having at least 2 GB of RAM available when you are processing your videos.

Make sure that you have enough free space on your computer’s hard drive to process the file or files, as well.

If processing is interrupted by a lack of available system resources, VideoReDo will stop and return an error message.

If you’re rendering multiple files, it’s generally best to generate them one at a time. The main reason for this is that if you have various files loaded and click ‘Render’, all the files will be rendered (even if it takes longer than expected).

 If you try rendering one file at a time, each file will automatically stop generating when it reaches the length of time you set (30 minutes by default).

This way, if the rendering time is longer than you expected for one file, it won’t influence or slow down the processing of another. 

Rendering times may vary depending on encoding speed and hardware configuration. Roku recommends having at least a dual-core processor with 1 GB of system memory.

What Is A YouTube Video, And How Does It Work

YouTube is not just a website where you can watch videos; it’s the most extensive online video community. It’s also the second most used search engine after Google. People use YouTube to share their videos with millions of other users on this platform.

It Works Like This

You click on a video that interests you, then YouTube will automatically start buffering it. The video will then be played on your screen, and you can watch it whenever you want and as many times as you like.

Each time that you click on a new video, YouTube will buffer the entire thing again.

YouTube uses special software to process all of those videos. Our VideoReDo TV Suite is such software:

You can download it for free on this website. It’s not just for watching YouTube videos; it can also be used to process them.

This way, you will be able to edit the video (for example, cut out parts) and save it as an MP4 file of your choice.

How Long Does It Take For A Video To Be Processed On Youtube

It depends on the length of the video, its quality and your computer’s performance.

A 1080p HD clip that is 5 minutes long can be processed in about 30 minutes.

A 720p HD clip that is 1 hour long will take 2 hours to process.

A 480p SD clip that is 10 minutes long will take around 20 minutes to process.

A 720p HD clip that is 4 hours long can usually be processed in a few hours.

Why Do Videos Sometimes Not Process Correctly

You can check your videos before processing them to make sure they are in good shape. 

But sometimes, when you download a video, the quality is not very good. For example, if someone recorded their phone screen with another device or software, this may result in low quality.

If your editing program can change the width and height of the video, this may also result in low quality.

YouTube videos are processed at a speed of 15 frames per second to ensure good performance.

If the video has less than 1500 kbps or 10mbps, it won’t play well enough on YouTube. By changing various aspects of the video, you can improve its playback performance. Our free YouTube converter can help you with this.

There are several ways to download videos for free, which you can use as your source file:

– Youtube directly from the app, browser or platform of your choice.

– Online storage sites such as Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox.

– The TV itself can be used as a source, for example, by connecting a USB drive to the TV which has the videos on it.

– DVDs, Blu-ray discs and other devices that are plugged into your TV through HDMI.

You should only download the content you want to edit with VideoReDo as the program will only work with one file at a time. You can process as many videos as you like, but you should make sure to export each of them after editing; otherwise, they will be lost.

This is done using our free YouTube converter, which comes with VideoReDo TV Suite. You have to open the program, choose your video and select “Advanced editing” in your right-hand menu. 

Here you can modify essential parameters such as output file type (MP4), video codecs, subtitles, watermarking, etc. If you want to process multiple videos at once, we recommend using our MultiTool add-on instead.

Tips For Uploading Your Videos To Youtube

  1. The Title, Description and Tags should be as descriptive as can be.
  2. Use good keywords
  3. Add the ID3 tags of your uploaded video to make it easier for people to find. For example, if you are uploading a football match, use words like “football”, “match”, etc. so that when someone looks up these words, they will find your video.
  4. After uploading, you can always change the tags and description of your uploaded video with no penalty in YouTube’s search algorithm (unlike on Facebook). If you want to be super precise, go into edit mode and add tag words relevant to your uploaded video right after you upload it.
  5. If you have a channel, you can add the channel page URL in your video’s description so that YouTube indexes it and shows it when someone searches for videos from your channel.
  6. Use subtitles to make your content available to people who speak foreign languages or use speech recognition software (auto-captioning).
  7. Allow ads revenue sharing (by clicking the “Monetize my video” button) so that you can earn a percentage of the ad revenue generated by your videos.
  8. Promote your videos at least four times a week on every social media platform having corresponding accounts, and also try to use paid ads if it’s in your budget.
  9. To maximize the number of views on your videos, upload them when many people are online in your time zone.
  10. You can set up different video playlists that relate to each other so that when someone watches one video, they are more likely to watch another related one.
  11. Use pictures and thumbnails which are related to your videos.
  12. Always credit other people’s work (e.g., link to the original uploader, music track author and licensor, etc.). This will help your channel grow because other people will share it with their subscribers/friends.
  13. Don’t always re-upload content that already exists on YouTube since this will only get you penalized by YouTube’s new copyright protection algorithm.
  14. Always give your content a human touch so that it is not machine-like.
  15. Encourage subscribers to subscribe to your channel, leave comments, like/dislike videos and share them with their friends on social media platforms.
  16. If you upload videos onto YouTube, make sure always to put your contact email in the video description so that people can get in touch with you quickly.


YouTube is a great way to get your message out there and build up a community of people who support you, but it will take time and effort before you start seeing results.
