Update #4: YouTube Converter Blocking

Sorry it took so long. We were able to come up with another workaround. This one should last for a little bit longer until we finish testing our next generation conversion servers.

Stay tuned!

We apologize about the high number of queued conversions. We've run into some more youtube blocking issues. We're working to sort it out. Please check back here for an update!
We're also working on a new and improved version of our converter that won't be affected by this blocking issue in the future. So stick around for that update! :)

We're done tweaking our conversion servers so that they can handle the youtube blocks automatically without affecting the speed of conversions. Everything should be back up to speed. Please let us know if you're having any issues!

Have a great day!

Update #1: YouTube Converter Blocking

This is an update. We've found a quick workaround and our converter is working again (not as quick and efficient as before though). We're still working to get it back up to speed but it should start processing conversions again. If you do get the error message again, try again in a minute or two and you should see the conversion was completed.

We'll post another update once we've found a more permanent and efficient solution.

Have a great day!

Scheduled YouTube Converter Maintenance

We will be tweaking our YouTube converter this weekend and maybe even the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week. Our conversion servers should continue to work just fine, but might become unavailable for a few minutes. If it does start cancelling/failing conversions, please wait a couple minutes and try again.

Sorry for any inconveniences!
