        Hey guys, did you know that you can share your training videos in the forum? Click LINK when posting in the forum and you can link to your videos in Instagram, YouTube, etc. You can also share your monthly challenge video submissions in the forum by copying your ‘my videos’ url from your profile and linking it to your forum post. Remember you can only upload one video per month in your profile for review to earn stars. You can delete and re-upload as many times as you like per month if you need to update your video. Video submissions for the monthly challenge must be in no later than 11:59pm on the final day of each month in order to be reviewed/ earn your stars!

          Hi!
          I have a question about the sequence. Maybe this has been mention in the video and I missed it. Should the sequence be identical to the monthly challenge? (For example the climb has to be the same or can we add variations?)

          Thank you in advance for your help 🙂

            HI Maria, yes feel free to add a different climb in the beginning and style of your choice! You can add slight variations but the structure of the sequence should be the same.

                Hi, I have a question about feedback. If I don’t have what it takes to do the monthly challenge yet, but keep on practicing it–and one day I nailed it and post a video of it here (after the month has passed), would I still get a feedback?

                    Hi there! Yes you can keep working on this months challenge combination and post it in the coming months as your video submission for the month (instead of a future combination). As an example, if in January 2021 you feel ready, you can submit the September combination instead of the January combination and receive star rewards for this. Let us know if you have any other questions/if that makes sense, thank you!

                    hey there,

                    I am wondering if it#s possible to upload vieos and pics directly from my smartphone or tablet after I filmed it? Or do I have to upload it first? Would be great if there was an option for uploading it directly, I dont have a youtube account and insta tv is kinda crappy in my opinion. Or do you have any suggestions for a page to upload videos and share the link without needing an account? 🙂

                        Hi! You can upload any video to your Silks Stars profile and then share it in the forum. You are limited to one video per month which is why we suggested using Youtube or Instagram to share multiple videos and reserving your Silks Stars video profile for your monthly submission. Thank you!

                          Hello, I am new to submitting videos here and I wanted to make sure i did it correctly. I submitted the june 2022 challenge as my february 2023 submission. I did not receive any feedback or stars. I am wondering if I submitted the video incorrectly. or if you only have to do the current month’s challenge. What did I do wrong? Thank you!

                              HI! I am trying to upload a video and it won’t attach. Can I post a youtube link?

                              I had a drastic knee injury so I have had to do my own thing for now. But I do have a video of what I CAN do for now!

                                Hi Robin if you go to your profile page and click the ‘upload’ video button, you should be able to upload your video. If you are having trouble on your computer please try your phone as it could be an issue with the file being too big. Please let us know if you are still having issues after trying with your phone and we will have our tech expert look into it. Thanks so much, looking forward to seeing your work!

                                    Thank you! Unfortunately it still doesn’t load. I’m not sure what else to try. I do love the idea of this program, though!

                                      Hi Robin, we are sorry to hear you’re still having trouble uploading. Have you tried using a different browser such as Chrome instead of Safari? on your phone and/or computer? Since you’ve been having problems uploading and it’s now November, it’s probably better at this point to just email us a link from youtube or instagram of your October challenge and we will review it that way so we can still see your work and reward you stars! You can email it to us at info@silkstars.com
                                      Hopefully you will be able to upload on your profile this month and going forwards. We will keep workin with ya to figure it out! -Brett

                                      Hi, I’m trying to upload my video for the month (I have not uploaded anything in October yet), but I get the error “You can not upload any media in this month as you had exceeded monthly limit to upload media.” even though I’ve not added any video at all. I don’t want to miss out on earning my stars.. what should I do?

                                          Hi Laura. I’m glad to see you eventually were able to upload. Curious if you did anything differently that time that made it so you were able to upload your October challenge? Do you think it was an internet connection issue? If you have any trouble again uploading in November, let us know 🙂 Thanks! -Brett

                                          Hi, Same things for me on my computer and my phone, I can’t upload my october challenge. How could I send the video?

                                              HI Delphine, So the reason you couldn’t upload is because you uploaded your September challenge a bit late (October 1st), and our system only allows members to upload 1 video per month. The best solution would be to email us a link to your OCTOBER challenge video, and we will review it from there. That way you should be good to go and upload your November challenge this month as well as the months to come through your profile again, as long as you post it before the last night of November (los angeles time). Thanks! info@silkstars.com

                                              Hi! I uploaded a video last night and this morning, instead of a thumbnail of the video there is a picture of film. When I click on the video, it says that it is still being converted and only shows the upper left hand corner of the video. My past uploads haven’t taken this long to convert (>12 hours). Am I doing something wrong or do I just need to be patient for the conversion to occur?

                                              Oddly, when I open the video on my phone, it looks normal. But I can’t see myself in the video on my computer. Maybe it’s just my computer? 🤷‍♀️

                                                  Hi Elle! your video looks like it’s very high quality and a larger file so it might take longer to convert, and/or possibly have trouble creating a thumbnail. But, we can see your video nice and clear from our end so no need to worry if the thumbnail doesn’t show up as a picture, we can still see your video. You’re looking lovely up there! 🙂

                                                    Hello! I am catching up. I just worked on December and January Challenges. I have uploaded December and will replace it with January soon (just so you know I’m still keen!)
                                                    I will be living on a sail boat soon so I will not be able to do much (we think low static moves will be all I can do), but these tutorials are fantastic! Thank you!

                                                        Yesterday I uploaded the video for this month’s challenge but I think something’s wrong. It really takes a long time to load and when it does, there’s no video just audio.
                                                        Should I try to upload it again?

                                                              Hi! This is my 1st month and I’m super excited, but also super concerned that I’ve done something incorrectly while trying to upload my video. It’s been 14 hrs now and it still says the file is converting and there is no thumbnail. I deleted and tried again, but getting the same results. 😟 Advice?

I have been trying since yesterday and have also tried to upload a low res version with no success. I am certain that I uploaded my video for last month on time so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong

                                                                      Just so it is in on time, here is an instagram link. Sorry for the extra choreography. I was planning on re-recording, but the wind and rainstorms have complicated things this month. https://www.instagram.com/p/CKA9zj3DxRB/

                                                                        I have uploaded my February combo (can you see it? My computer always plays up with this website). Definitely still a work in progress! I found the wraps a bit fiddly so felt restricted in my flow, but I think with more time to practice I could improve. Any feedback on getting the wraps right would be appreciated. I remembered to wear red! <3 Happy Valentines’ everyone xxxxxxxx

I’ve been trying for two days now, changing the file size, logging out and back in, etc. But I still can’t get anything to upload. I’m fairly certain I’m doing it the same as I have uploaded videos in the past… any ideas of what might be going wrong?

                                                                                I can’t upload my video for the March challenge. I’ve had no trouble the last two months. This time I filmed with a camera. The file is an mp4. I’ve tried many times today and yesterday to up load it via the computer and the android phone. I ve tried to shrink the size it still doesn’t work. It uploads in the thumbnail and the green line at the bottom reaches the far right end and then it just disappears and only the two videos I”ve uploaded the previous months stay there.
                                                                                Is there another way I can send this video. I don’t have time to film again with another device.
                                                                                Thanks

I have used my iphone in previous months with bigger files but this time the file is rendering before disappearing.Any other options to upload and submit the video this month?

                                                                                          Thanks, Naomi

It loads all the way and then shows only my last 2 videos. Hopefully it doesn’t upload 30+ videos on your end…because that’s how many times I’ve tried loading it!

I tried both smartphone and laptop and none worked an I have a stable conection. The file uploads unusually fast and then the page refreshes, but the new video isnt there…

This is frustrating because I want the whole video to be able to be viewed smoothly!! and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I usually upload it from my phone, but I have also uploaded from my laptop with the same glitchy issues. Is anyone else having this problem? Any ideas as to what can I do to fix this? Thanks 🙂

                                                                                                        It does look like your video quality is 4K which is the very best quality. Some devices do have trouble playing 4K quality. Another factor can be if the wifi connection isn’t super fast 4K videos can have a stop and start effect because of that as well. We would recommend changing the video recording quality to 1080p (which is still HD quality) on your phone before filming to avoid this issue completely in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I did a test uploading a smaller file (40Mb vs 283Mb) and it’s still saying that it’s compressing after a few days. That function to choose your thumbnail is gone, and so is viewing the vertical video without having it scroll above and below the fold. At least it’s working, but hoping to have that fixed for the next submissions. Help!

I tried uploading my January 2022 video but after it shows me the activity bar that uploading (full size render) is happening, the video still does not get added in my profile. Please let me know what I should do. Thanks.

When I first started this program, my videos loaded just fine. Now it’s always saying something like, this file is converting load later or come back later. It buffers through the whole thing when it loads, etc. I know I don’t waist time waiting for videos to load… why would anyone else!

Sometimes our system has trouble uploading 4k video quality, so we recommend going to the settings in your phone, clicking on the camera tab, and changing your recording settings to 1080HD instead of 4k. It’s still very clear quality and much faster to upload with less chance of technical errors.

                                                                                                                                • #12257

I haven’t had this issue before, I’m on my phone because that’s what I used to make the video. Any tips? Thanks!

                                                                                                                                        When I upload the video, do I have to set it as featured in order to receive a review?
                                                                                                                                        Thanks in advance!

I’m trying to upload my first video, of the October challenge. It’s showing that something is in my media file, but I can’t play the video, and then when I navigate away and come back to my profile, it says there is no video there. I’ve tried it on iphone, computer and ipad, from my desktop and straight from my photos app. Is there a trick I’m missing??

Just posted my first one so don’t know the whole process yet… Thanks!

My video for this month looks as though it is about to finish loading but then drops back to the upload menu. I haven’t changed what I am doing so I am not sure what’s wrong. I’ll try in another place tomorrow in case it’s the internet but have tried 4 places now. Just thought I’d let you know! I love the sequence! Robin
