Why are my videos loading slow is a question that I have been asking myself here at pajama affiliates for about a month now. It just did not make any sense. I added some bonuses to my home study course and the Amazon Sales Ninja ones took forever to load. Note here, technical issues are not my forte!
What didn’t make any sense was that the previous videos that I loaded in the past worked just fine. I contacted several people and they all told me I had too much on one page. I was quoted $90.00 for one person to come in and move them onto separate pages. I am very glad I did not take them up on that offer because that wasn’t the problem. I tried this solution myself and it did not help. That is when it dawned on me that it had something to do with the videos and not my site or my storage clouds.
Then I thought it must be something in my Amazon S3 account. I discovered I could add a cloud storage and that should speed them up. So after about 4 hours figuring out how to make that work, I discovered that wasn’t the issue either.
It was the dang file size. I think I mentioned earlier that I am not a technical savvy person. I don’t like dealing with technical issues at all. I would rather be beat. I often allow them to intimidate me and I procrastinate and put this part of my work at home business as last on my list.
I am sure there are many out there that would have known right away why my videos were loading slow on in the Amazon Sales Ninja part of my home study course at Pajama Affiliates. Oddly though, the tech savvy people I did ask did not know.
Moral of this story. Don’t let technical things hold you back. If I could figure it out and fix this issue, then anyone can. I used a free software called handbreak to resize my videos and now all is well. My customers are happy to as I am sure they were getting quite frustrated waiting on these videos to load!
