Thank you Baradanikto for the suggestion. I actually went back and traced my steps with a fine tooth comb, and corrected the issue. I believe the exact issue was that my bit rate was not correct for the video file.
I host my videos with Vimeo Pro, and I also switched from the 1080P version of the video to 720P.
So I updated the video file and the bit rate, by the next morning the video was live. I am going to try 1080P again sometime soon, but that video was so delayed that I really didn't care which version of it went live. Thanks again for the help!
