Did you know, you “can” pause and resume uploading big big file to Youtube without any add on application installed?
This was easy than thought!
I has a problem to upload full HD video that is so big big big … and my internet was slow slow slow … it’s like it’s never gonna happen … until I find (hidden) hints in Youtube Help about this.
How to :-
1. Upload the file
2. When you are out of time (like you upload the file all night and it just finish 15%!) click on the “x” mark, the text “cancel upload” will appear. Don’t afraid, click it!
3. You have time within 24 hours to resume
4. When you want to resume upload, you go to Youtube upload page and browse the “same” file that sitting on the “same” place (folder) in 1. and click upload as usual
5. Youtube will show “Upload pending …” in the progress bar … and then (after it think for a sec) … it will show you that 15% progress and continue uploading your file from that!!! I believe we can continue upload the file as long as the duration after cancel in within 24 hours (should enough for most circumstances)
