YouTube Video Length Increased To 15 Minutes

Upload limit increased from 10 minutes to 15 minutesJust about a week ago YouTube increased their video length limit from 10 to 15 minutes! This gives you 5 extra minutes for your videos so that you can fit more and more content in a single video. The upgrade applies to non-partners and the YouTube team promises the video quality won’t be reduced.

The new YouTube ContentID, VideoID and AudioID system helps wipe out duplicate videos, so every time a duplicate is detected YouTube gains more and more free space. They have decided to use this free space for longer videos and most users say they are happy with the upgrade. YouTube also included a “15 Minutes Of Fame” contest which is sadly over now, but drew a lot of attention and heat to regular YouTube-ers.

Personally I prefer creating and viewing videos that are under a minute.  The only exception is professional music videos so as this one:

So go out and publish those long 15 minute videos or listen to one of my favorite songs like the one above.  🙂
