Initial Loading Issues
When accessing a video for the first time in the Video Analysis Workspace, you may see the text “Working on it” in place of some features. This means that the system is still processing the video. Wait for a few minutes and then refresh the screen to see the features.
If a video was loaded prior to your organization’s switch to the new Video Insights interface, an option to analyze the video will appear. You must only do this once for any older video you would like to analyze. Analysis takes anywhere from 4-20 minutes, depending on video length.
Trouble with Older Videos
Some older videos may not automatically be processed when loaded into the Video Analysis Workspace. On such occasions, you will see the text “NLP not available” in place of various features. To start processing the video, click the “Analyze” button that appears.
