Uploading videos to Kajabi through Wistia

Learn how Kajabi uses Wistia to upload and store your videos.

Uploading through Wistia

When you choose a file to upload, whether it be from a Google Drive, Dropbox, or your local hard drive, our video partner Wistia will need to encode the video in varios formats so that it can be delivered to all kinds of devices with varying internet speeds (don't worry, this is automatically going on in the background during your upload).

Wistia will usually run a quick pass on one format of your video so that you can view it immediately. However, in the background Wistia is encoding higher quality versions. This is why you'll see the "Coverting" and "Storing" message just after uploading a video file.

Give a video about 15-30 mins after uploading and it should be viewable at a higher quality!

Remember: Upload speed is dependent on your internet connection and device processing power.
