YouTube Removes Time Limit for Videos

For the first time since YouTube’s launch, it announced earlier this year that the time limit for uploaded videos will be raised from 10 minutes to 15 minutes. However, in their recently updated blog, they have revealed that there will be no set time limit for uploaded videos.

Joshua Siegel, a Product Manager, and Doug Mayle, a Software Engineer at YouTube wrote on the YouTube blog

Your creativity isn’t bound by a time limit, so why should your video uploads be? Back in July we raised the upload limit to 15 minutes for all users

The blog also added

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

The blog encouraged YouTube users to upload ‘As long as it’s your original content, it’s fair game regardless of length’.

Additionally the blog announced that ‘This launch has been made possible in part by the continued advances in our state-of-the-art Content ID system, as well as our other powerful tools for copyright owners’.

This is a big change for users and has been welcomed by a lot of YouTube enthusiasts. Additionally it ensures to remove any speculations of the time limit being only a technical one.
