Why: We’re Processing This Video. Check Back Later. – YouTube

We’re Processing This Video Check Back Later YouTube

When you upload a video to YouTube, you will see YouTube beginning processing the video. Sometimes, processing takes longer or may become hung and you see the following YouTube message below.

 

We’re processing this video. Check back later.

Sorry about that.

 

In addition, you will not be able to play or see a preview of the video you uploaded until the YouTube processing has completed.

Are you currently experiencing this issue? Use the comment form below to let us know if you or others experience the issue at the same time. This is likely an issue with YouTube happening for everyone.

 

In most cases, waiting longer for the video to process works and YouTube will confirm the processing has completed. Re-uploading the video during the time of the issue does not work or fix the issue.

Solution #1 (manual)
In drive create a copy, wait a few minutes the copy is ok to view/stream. Then delete the original
`Con: may use quota for file space`

Solution #2 (manual)
If you are using google backup and sync. Change the setting to upload in high quality to upload in original quality. delete the video and reupload it problem is solved.
`Pro: although I thought it should count against quota in original it does not!`
Solution #3 (programming)
Using google app script I created a script that loops thorough all my files on drive, finding those marked as "we`re processing this video. Please check back later."

by using advanced drive services
var file = Drive.Files.get(fileId);
var metaData = file.videoMediaMetadata;

Those that return no metadata are the same files that are stuck in processing.
Then you can create a copy and delete the original

// the new copy will be processed (may take time be patient)
var newfile = file.makeCopy(filenamenew);

// deleting the original file. the files are identical even after downloading to local computer to check
file.setTrashed(true);
`Con: Copy file does count against quota for storage used-

'What' processing? Exactly what is Google doing to the video? No one seems to answer that.
