Uploading problem

Hi,

I haven't been able to upload videos for awhile due to the fact that the upload keeps freezing on me. On Chrome, I observed that the upload stops at 99%, and my uplink speed goes to 0 at that point. Soon after, of course, I get 504: timed out. Same issue with Firefox.
Anyone's experiencing the same thing?

Cheers.

I uploaded four new mp4 files yesterday, (replacing 29.97fps versions with 30.00fps and a 128 kbit/s audio version with 224 kbit/s):

I didn't experience any problems at all. Firefox and Chrome worked equally well, but only Chrome displayed the percentage as usual. My most recent all new video took 149 seconds to upload 148 MB file size when uploaded at breakfast time. (My ISP typically gets a bit bogged down in the evenings).

I don't have any oceans between my home and Iwara's servers though. I wonder why overseas uploaders seem to experience so many problems with time-outs?

May I ask which country do you reside in? I'm in the U.S, and it's been like this for me for months. It was fine before.

Found out why. Was a problem with my encoding method.

Iwara's servers used to be located in Paris and then in Istanbul, both on mainland Europe that is part of the Euro-Asian landmass.

To my understanding, the iwara server tries to re-encode videos that do not meet their expectations. This happens when you upload something larger than 300mb, or, in my case, a 144fps video. This process takes time and may cause the page to time-out.

Anyways, have just successfully uploaded: https://ecchi.iwara.tv/videos/95vvvc66bszlbjwg

Thanks for your help!

Iwara allows embedding of Google Drive links. You could click on "Edit" below the current video, then click on "embed" to the right of "upload", and then finally just paste your Google Drive link there. After clicking on "save" would your viewers watch the 144fps version instead.

You can swap between embedding and mp4 upload any number of times, without affecting the URL/comments/likes/view count.

I've found that most viewers don't enjoy embedded videos. There are constraints for Google Drive as well. Such as bandwidth limits for a single file. Uploading onto Youtube is a bad idea too.

144 fps is way too much for most streaming content. I don't think my browser even supports that.

Yeah you're right. It does make the animations really smooth when you have the uncompressed file, though.
