Once the file has been uploaded, you will see a dialog box stating the file has been uploaded successfully.

Once the files are uploaded, they will not be ready for immediate use. The files will require additional time for processing in order to function in the Echo360 environment. The processing time depends on the size of the media file and the level of server traffic.
