Uploading Process

When you begin uploading your video, gymGO will begin a two phase process.

1) Processing

gymGO will begin to process your video as soon as you start uploading. The processing will usually take 1/3 the time of the video. So if your video is 30 minutes in length it should take about 10 minutes. If the video is higher quality it may take a lot longer. A typical 30 minute video at 1080p will usually be around 600-800 MB but could be smaller or larger. Please be patient while the video is processing and make sure you have your computer plugged in (if you're using a laptop).

Hints While The Video Is Processing

* Close all other tabs in your browser

* Close all other programs on your computer

2) Uploading

Once the video has been processed, it's time to upload it to gymGO. This involves taking your video file and securing it on gymGO so you can deliver it to your clients. This process can take 5-10 minutes for a 30 minute video. This process can take a lot longer if you have a bad network connection. Try to be close to your wifi router when you are doing this process. If you're doing this process from a mobile device you will use 100-300MB of wireless data. You are able to resume uploads that don't complete and we support bad network connections but it's an easier process when you have a good connection.

Delivering the video to your clients

gymGO allows you fine grained control over who sees your video. We use powerful security to only grant access to the users that you've allowed access to.
