Quik uploading to youtube extremely slow

Got a Hero 5 Black last night. Doing a test video to compare quality, fps, etc on youtube. 

 

Its taking over an hour to prepare and upload a 1min 3 sec video in 4k30  to youtube. My internet connection is plenty fast enough. 

 

Any idea why its so painfully slow? I plan on uploading 20min motocross videos, it shouldnt take longer than 10 min to upload a 1 min video in my mind. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  MacBook Pro Retina, i5, 8gbram, SSD. OSX 10.12.4

Re: Quik uploading to youtube extremely slow

@nathann54585 - Are you uploading directly to YouTube or uploading through the Quik for Desktop program? If one is slow, the other may be quicker.


Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Quik uploading to youtube extremely slow

I am using the Quik program going to youtube. I put in a SSD hard drive and its better but still pretty slow.  Ill just live with it because the gauges are so cool!
