Back in July, Google raised the upload limit of YouTube videos to 15 minutes for all users. Starting today, Google’s allowing “selected users with a history of complying with the YouTube Community Guidelines and copyright rules to upload videos that’re longer than 15 minutes.”
Just click the “Upload” button at the top of the site to see if your account qualifies. And remember, if you’re uploading a video that was previously rejected for being too long, go into “My Videos” and delete the old video before uploading it again.
