YouTube Video Limit Increased to 15 Minutes

July 29, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

In another move of improvement by YouTube’s developers, the service now allows users to upload videos of up to 15 minutes, as opposed to the previous limit of 10 minutes. This has been the most requested feature so far, according to YouTube’s research data, and it would’ve actually been done sooner if it hadn’t been for some issues with a higher priority that had to be dealt with first.

Some of the data revealed by YouTube shows some interesting facts – for example, every minute users upload videos with a total length of 24 hours – compared to the 6 hours which were recorded about three years ago, it’s quite an improvement. And seeing the new increase in video length limit, we can only see this number going up from now on.

When the website was started, there was no limit on the video length that could be uploaded, but this proved problematic as users started putting up copyrighted material, and YouTube had to impose certain limitations, while creating new account types that could be used by people who needed to upload longer videos (like performers).
