 CustomUp to 60Maximum (100%)

Troubleshooting Export issues

When exporting a Doodly video, you can expect an export speed of 3 minutes per minute of video (with average settings of 480p & 30 FPS). The longer and more complicated the video, the longer it will take to export. 


If you are having issues exporting your Doodly video we recommend checking the following:  

  • Imported audio file type - Certain audio files are not compatible with Doodly. Please click through to learn more about compatible audio file types.

  • Internet connection speed - As with all of the Doodly functions, internet speed is very important. A slow, weak signal, may cause the software to function slowly, or not respond at all! Please visit SpeedTest to check your internet speed, and you may want to contact your ISP to do more testing on your connection/router.

  • Export Settings - Changing the export settings such as Resolution, FPS and Quality may be necessary for a successful export. Please click through to learn more about export settings for Doodly projects.

  • Foreign/Special Characters - Changing the title may be necessary if certain foreign/special characters [such as backslashes (/) or symbols (@)] were used. Please click through to learn more about renaming a project that has foreign characters in the title.

  • Firewall Settings - Double check your firewall as this may prevent the video from exporting.

  • Export Destination - The destination location of the mp4 video can be changed during the export process, however, most devices have a standard/default location for downloads.

    • For Apple/Mac the default destination is the Movies folder.

    • For PC the default destination is the Desktop Libraries folder.

Please Note: More often than not, the file has in fact exported but may not be in the place you expected. Be sure to search your hard drive thoroughly. If you have tested all the above and are still experiencing issues, please contact our Support Team for assistance. 


Troubleshooting Video Playback Issues

Certain video players (i.e. Windows Media Player and VLC) display file names during video playback. If you export a Doodly video and see the name of your project when playing the video, please be aware that this is a feature of the video player and not part of the file itself.


If you upload your video to a site like YouTube or watch the video in another video player, this component will not be visible at all - to you or to any other viewers/potential customers!
