- After you are done uploading, our servers will prepare your video for playback on the flitelevel.tv website. This process may take up to several hours depending on usage. Once the process is finished you will receive an Email that will inform you that your video is ready to be watched.
- To guarantee that all videos fulfill the quality and legal requirements of our website, flitelevel.tv personnel have to review all video material before publishing it. Once the review process has been completed successfully your video will automatically go automatically.
