The easy workaround to upload OBS recording files to YouTube is to convert and split OBS .flv, .mp4 to YouTube compatible video. Here is how.
I’m having a hard time uploading some OBS files to YouTube. I recorded some OBS videos but it won’t upload on YouTube. Every time I try it gets stuck at “processing” and then later gives me error video failed to process. I am considering isn’t OBS files accepted by YouTube due to the file format or any other limits?
Got more details of OBS recording files and I got know that generally OBS saves files as MP4 or FLV. Whereas, YouTube has some limits for video size, length, resolution, etc. That’s basic reason why YouTube won’t load OBS files.
Searching from Google and got some recommended solutions. The most practical one is to try the app Brorsoft Video Converter (or the Mac version).
With this OBS file converter, you can fast trim the OBS .flv or .mp4 videos into multiple segments with short duration. What's more, with this video converter, you can set the proper video resolution, frame rate for displaying on YouTube correctly. Besides OBS video, it can also convert MKV, VOB, MXF, MTS, MPG, H.265, AVI to YouTube for widely sharing. Now I’ll share the step-by-step solution uploading OBS recordings to YouTube easily.
