Troubleshooting Video Uploading Issues

Having trouble uploading your video to Later? Try these tips:

  1. If you’re uploading from Google Drive or Dropbox, download the video to your computer first and then upload it from there. 
  2. Try uploading through another browser.
  3. Make sure you don’t have a pop-up blocker on your browser, as it can interfere with uploads. 
  4. Try converting your file to another supported file type (MP4, QuickTime, 3GP, AAC, AVI and MPEG-2). 
  5. Make sure your video isn’t exported in Apple ProRes format.
  6. Test your internet connection. Upload speeds under 10Mbps are too weak to upload videos.
