Increased AWS Error Rates
Incident Report for Wistia
Our metrics report that video playback is back to normal. We are still working off a processing queue that built up as a result of the outage, but new uploads should be processed with only a minor delay.

It appears that Amazon has made some progress on addressing their issue, which has allowed us to begin addressing our end of the symptoms. Uploading, encoding, and delivery will be returning to normal shortly. Playback may take a bit longer to fully return to normal as our content delivery networks fetch things from origin (which is where Amazon's services are in our tech stack). We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Assets currently cached in the Content Delivery Networks that we use will be unaffected, though assets that are not cached may fail (this is estimated to be about 5-7% of videos at any given time).
