YouTube Increases Video Upload Length to 15 Minutes
Those of you looking for your 15 minutes of fame are in luck. YouTube announced Thursday that it has increased the maximum length of uploaded videos from 10 minutes to 15 minutes for all users.
The ability to upload longer videos has been "without question, the number one requested feature" from users, Joshua Siegel, product manager for upload and video management at YouTube, wrote in a blog post.
Recent improvements to the site's Content ID system has allowed for the upload limit increase, Siegel wrote.
"Now, all of the major U.S. movie studios, music labels and over 1,000 other global partners use Content ID to manage their content on YouTube," he said. "Because of the success of these ongoing technological efforts, we are able to increase the upload limit today."
