YouTube increases upload size limit and adds batching

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 11 Nov 2007 18:58 User comments (9)

YouTube increases upload size limit and adds batching YouTube has announced that it has increased its upload size limit to 1 GB and introduced the option to upload batch videos.
The software however, is a separate download that must be run off the users hard drive. There is still the option to upload through the browser if you so choose though but the new size limit does not apply.

The new size limit should help to solve some of YouTube's video quality issues as the compression will not be as high as current videos are.

This latest move should also give YouTube another edge over the competition, because most offer only 100 MB maximum uploads.

I dont think they will make it unlimited on video uploading because they are always under some kind of scrutiny over whats being upped. Would be nice.

this is a very good update for youtube even though you may need to use your hard drive as an ftp to store files on, well thats wat it sounds like to me.

That's because they don't actually host the files, but the *links* to the files. I mean, just how big can the largest link be? 100 bytes?
