Youtube – Increases File Limit, Multi-file Uploader

In YouTube’s latest blog post, they said they now have increased the file limit from 10 MB to 1 Gig.   This will lead to higher quality videos, but the time limit of 10 minutes is still the same.  Also, for the Window users, there is a program available that will let you upload multiple files at the same time, instead of one file at a time.

Here is a copy of the blog post below:

Have a hard drive full of new videos? With the YouTube Uploader, we’ve now made it easier to get them all live on the site. This small piece of software lets you upload multiple videos to YouTube at the same time; each video can be up to 10 minutes in length and up to 1GB in size. That’s right, no more compressing to 100MB – we want your big files!

Right now the YouTube Uploader is only available for Windows PCs but we’re cooking up a Mac version too. To get started, just go to the installer webpage and download the software. Then you’ll be able to access the Multifile Upload page and start your, well, uploading. These videos will be available in My Videos after they have finished processing. (Note: it may take 30 minutes or more for extremely large files to appear on your page.) We link to the Multifile Upload page from today’s single file upload page so you can always find your way back.

Happy Uploading!
