Check the upload progress

Check the upload progress via Video > Preview on the Video / Loop video edit screen.

You normally see the following statuses in order:

  2. Processing: Pangea CMS is encoding the video file.
  3. Playback options: The video file is fully processed and ready to publish.

In rare cases, you might see the Failed status. For details, go to Troubleshooting.



Troubleshooting

If an upload fails, you see the Failed status in the search results and on the Video / Loop video edit screen.

We suggest replacing the video file from the Video / Loop video edit screen. When you use this option, you will not lose any metadata that you have already added on the edit screen. To replace the file, hit Replace. You can then upload the file again.

If the issue persists, contact Pangea Customer Care so we can investigate.
