Access link to video during the upload process

It would be REALLY awesome if I could access the link to which a video is being uploaded to, WHILE the video is uploading. It's annoying having to wait until a video has uploaded before the link appears because sometimes I miss it and the rest of the time I need to tell someone where to find the video (in 5+ mins once it's finished uploading). I realise that this doesn't guarantee the video will be there if anything interrupts the uploading process, but it would seriously save me about 10-15 minutes per day!!

Thank you for the feedback. I think this is a reasonable request, and one that we've heard a few times before. You're correct that we would need to manage the actual display of content that isn't fully uploaded. Which product are you using to upload to your account?

I totally agree:
I have this request for a feature in Relay. Sometimes there is an encoding que on our Relay server. In the administration I can follow the pending progress, but why do I have to wait for the files URL link? I want to share the link and be done with the task and not go back and finish sharing the video, after the encoding process is done. We have other online video administration suite were the sharing option (link, embed etc.) is ready right a way. Even before the encoding is finished, making my time more efficient. And you are right, Dirk. Techsmith must display a "pending screen" for the viewer, until the recording is ready. Thanks
