We offer an online service, it means, that files have to be uploaded from your local device to our conversion hosts in order to be converted.
Usual conversion workflow was described in this article. As you can see, there are uploading and converting stages.
During this uploading stage, you will see percentage growing up from 0% to 100%. Depending on your file size, this step may take a long time and this time depends completely on the upload bandwidth of your internet service provider. (Not download bandwidth, but upload one).

So, you may stumble upon slow uploading stage progress if you have a big file and trying to convert this big file from your local device.
The converting stage usually does not require a lot of time - matter of seconds or minutes.
Example from the real life:
Say, you have download and upload rate = 100 mbit per second / 10 mbit per second.
So you can upload files in the internet with a speed = 10 megabit/second = 1.25 MegaBytes/second = 75 MegaBytes/minute = 4.4 GigaByte/hour.
So, with this upload bandwidth in this particular case it will take 1 hour to upload a 4,4 GB movie (DVD size) onto conversion server.
