Want to Upload Longer YouTube Videos?
It's widely known that YouTube only allows users upload videos that are shorter than fifteen minutes. Now, imagine you have a great video that you want to share with your YouTube audience, but it's longer than that. What alternatives do you have to reach your viewers? You could edit it down to fifteen minutes, but your audience will miss out on some great content. You could host it on an alternative platform, but you'll missing out on the audience that YouTube can provide. Fortunately, there's a very easy way for you to have that limit removed.
- Sign into YouTube and go to the Upload page. The address is http://www.youtube.com/upload. Click the 'Increase your limit' link.
- On the next screen, you should enter your cellphone number. YouTube will send a text message to the number you enter.
- When you receive the text from YouTube, it will contain a verification code. You should enter it here.
- When you enter the code correctly, you'll be taken back to the Upload page and you'll see a message stating that your account is enabled for videos longer than fifteen minutes.
Now you should be set up to share some of the longer videos you have with your wider YouTube audience. And don't forget; Caffeine can help you backup, manage, upload, and promote your videos, regardless of length.
