It takes anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. YouTube recommends that if after 8 hours it has not uploaded, to delete the video or cancel the uploading and try again later. It has to do with the size of your video and uploading traffic.

We do apologize for your inconvenience. As soon as the video goes live, it will be available for viewing. However, we are unable to provide any specific time frame for this. It may take a few hours or even a few days. We have no control over this time frame and further assistance is not available for this.
