What's the status of your file upload?
Once you've recorded a video using OpenReel, the next step is uploading the video to your OpenReel platform.
To upload, follow the steps outlined in this article: Uploading Videos
Once you've started the uploading process, you'll notice the status of the upload change as it progresses. Below you'll find information regarding each upload status.
- Recording: the video is currently in the process of recording
- Uploading: the video has stopped recording and is currently uploading to your OpenReel platform
- Creating Preview: the video has successfully been uploaded to your OpenReel platform and a preview is being generated. The original file is ready to download.
- Ready: the video has been recorded, uploaded to OpenReel services, and is now available for download onto the machine's local drive or share via direct download link.
- Queued: Once a video is uploaded to your platform, you have the option to transcode your file to an MP4 format. "Queued" Indicates the video has successfully been uploaded and is in the process of transcoding
- Corrupt: Indicates the video has encountered an error during recording and/or uploading, and is most likely unrecoverable. Corrupted files could be caused by the Subject exiting the OR Capture 1.0 app if using an iOS device, receiving a phone call or notification during recording, the Wi-Fi connection getting interrupted, or if a Webcam subject has other applications open on their device while recording. In rare cases, corrupted files may be recoverable through this workaround method, but in most cases those files are most likely lost.
- Unknown: Indicates the video has encountered an error during the recording or uploading process. The Director should first try refreshing their browser page, and secondly, try refreshing the Subject's connection (if the Subject is using an iOS device). The Director could also try to force an upload by clicking on the 3-dots by the file name and selecting Upload. If those actions don't work, it is likely the file is Corrupt.
