On January 12, Google launched a feature to upload videos to Google My Business local listings. According to Google, videos would be processed and live within 24 hours of being uploaded. But things seem to have gone awry. There is a bug that prevents the videos from showing up on the local listings in Google Maps or Google web search.
This bug was confirmed by Google My Business on Twitter:
We’re experiencing an issue with video uploads but the videos team is already aware and working on it. We’ll follow up here when the issue has been resolved. Thanks!

There are several business owners who uploaded videos to their Google My Business listings, and have reported that those videos, aren’t showing up, even after a few days after being uploaded. As an example, Barry Schwartz uploaded a video to his listing, which he demonstrated in a post on September 12, and the video still wasn’t visible on his business’s local listing in Google almost a week later.
When will the bug be fixed? Currently, it isn’t clear, but Google is aware of it and is working on a resolution.
