Hi @Rao Usman Ghani 

There are time limits on how long Zapier will wait for a service to tell it an action was successful.

In this case (I’d expect) the Youtube video is quite big and it’s taking too long for FB to upload it successfully.

From personal experience, I’ve found Youtube videos longer than just a few mins will hit this error. Sadly, the only real workaround is to make your videos shorter, which I understand might not be viable here.

Same problem, Zapier cannot upgrade this time value ?
