    Mine usually take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours. Perhaps its to do with the length of the videos

    Every video i've ever uploaded went live almost instantly. (maybe 1 minute for the site to refresh itself)

    Well if it has views then it is available for viewing. Does your video appear when you sort by recently uploaded videos?

    You have to search for the original file name of the video that you uploaded. You will instantly find your video like that. This is because it is initially "indexed" by the file name, until youtube finishes processing, and applies your "title" instead. Hope that helps!

    Even myonger videos are always processed and ready within an hour, usually a lot less time for me.
