If a video takes longer than an hour to upload, do you have to refresh the token while it's uploading?

For large video files, you have to split them up into chunks and do separate API calls for each chunk. When you upload chunks, do you have to periodically refresh the access_token when uploading subsequent chunks to the same videoID?

This is a great question! Our developers confirmed that refresh tokens are sent each time a video segment is sent (preventing the timeout from occurring). To confirm, I uploaded a 3.05 GB video on my very slow connection. The upload process took over an hour, and did not time out.

Here are the logs on the transcoding server:

…a lot of other entries…


So uploads of over 1 hour should still work.
