Create video API

Hi there!

I am trying to combine several videos into a grid with the create video api. The documentation is great and easy to follow. I have been testing the process with Postman. I sign the request with the manifest json as a parameter. The request is successful with a status code of 200. I receive a response object with the status (processing), the public id and the batch id. However, it's been half an hour and I have not seen any generated videos in my asset manager. I assumed the video creation would not take so long and also assume that I am missing something.

Is there a way to check on the status of a batch? What else can I try?

Happy to share code.

Thanks for your time!

    Solved this myself. I had the incorrect public ids for some of the videos I was trying to combine. I discovered that I could get an error report by setting the notification_url property, and analysing the response at that endpoint. Hope that helps others. Not sure if that's in the documentation, but that might be a helpful addition.

    Thank you.
