YouTube video times increased to 15 minutes

YouTube offers 15 minutes of fame with new maximum upload lengths

Video sharing website, YouTube has considerably altered the service it is offering users as the time limit imposed on all videos is increased to 15 minutes from the previous 10 minute offering.

Previously only paid for premium accounts could upload content longer than the 10 minute boundary, but thanks to some behind the scenes changes of the YouTube site, the hugely popular free to use service will be know be offered its own 15 minutes of fame.

Playing on this 15 minute of fame, YouTube is offering users the opportunity to appear on the site's homepage with their new 15 minute long videos. Content can be entered into this competition by adding the tag ‘yt15minutes’ to videos with the best being chosen for some highly valuable front page real-estate.

Joining the extended content times in the YouTube update is a huge refresh of the site’s Content ID system. This might not sound like a big deal but it means all but an end to the copyright issues that have troubled the video service. Through the new Content ID system, significant improvements have been made thanks to heightened relationships with record labels and film studios.
