YouTube Santa: The Good List Gets Unlimited Upload Length

Today Youtube announced that it was lifting the restriction it’s placed on the length of video content being uploaded to their platform. This is great news, because we don’t have to chop our videos into 15-minute chunks to get them uploaded and playable.

The Catch

Starting today, we’ll begin allowing selected users with a history of complying with the YouTube Community Guidelines and our copyright rules to upload videos that are longer than 15 minutes.

We all know that Youtube had kept the limit to 15 minutes to make it more difficult for people to post copyrighted content on the site. But apparently they are now comfortable enough with their detection algorithm to lift this limit and let “trusted” accounts upload longer videos. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly what that criteria is yet, but it still seems like a step in the right direction to give amateur movie makers a bit more creative freedom!

  1. Well, I don't know what the criteria is for getting the 15+ limit, but I got it, and it looks like plenty of people with strikes on their accounts are getting it, so it can't be THAT picky.

  2. Had Youtube kept the limit to 15 minutes to make it
    more difficult for people to post copyrighted content on the site?
