Exporting VODs longer than 12 hours does not work
When exporting a VOD to YouTube, it is broken up into segments if it is longer than 12 hours. This feature is broken in two ways.
The major issue:
It does not work. It splits into segments that are of length 12:00:01, which are abandoned by YouTube, and have to be deleted.
The minor issue:
The naming is wrong. A 2-part export will be named "part 0/2" and "part 1/2."
This does not seems like a difficult fix and its still broken, what do we do
I completely agree. It's frustrating when you have extended streams and the upload fails just because it's a second over 12 hours.
all of my vods, almost all of them, get this error for part 0/2 (I saved most at 23:58 but I've tested 14 and 18 hour and the first part always fails! ) please don't make me download the archive files and break them up for YT re upload. why wouldn't the parting use 11:59:45 or whichecer second it grab key frame without exceeding 718/719 min
To add onto this:
The button in the export pop up window has a label "Split the video in to 15 minute segments". (because google has a 15 min upload limit for unverified accounts) and even this button doesn't do its job.
I also just tried the Export feature yesterday on a VOD longer than 12 hours and I can confirm that it doesn't work.
When it splits the video into parts the first part is too long so it can only be deleted again from Youtube. Also the naming of the parts are wrong (0/2 and 1/2).
Yeah this is really frustrating, I had gone back and marked a bunch of VODs for export before they were deleted, and then didn't check on their status until it was too late; 14-16 hour streams, split into a "processing abandoned, video is too long" part, and a random few hours from the end getting preserved. As far as I can tell, my only option on YouTube is to delete the file, but I am afraid to press the button in case there ever was a way to snip the ends of the file and have it finally be processed. Someone please let me know if there's a way to recover the abandoned file on YouTube... But yeah, this shouldn't be a problem in the first place, and it really needs to export in correctly sized segments!
Exporting >12hr VODs causes them to split into chunks of up to 12 hours. The max length of a YouTube upload is not 12 hours, but 11h 59m 59s, so with the way that Twitch currently splits VODs during export, these exports fail.
To guard against this, the split chunks should probably be 11h 55m long, instead of exactly 12h long.
