YouTube Is Now Accepting Multiple 1GB Uploads

By Amit Chowdhry • Nov 9, 2007

Google’s YouTube is ready to ramp up with more and higher quality content. Now users are encouraged to upload more files with higher resolutions and longer in length. Each video can now be 10 minutes long and 1GB in size. Originally, each movie file allowed on YouTube was limited to only 100MB.

YouTube is also building a YouTube Uploader tool for Mac. The YouTube Uploader tool for Windows PCs can be downloaded from Multi-Video Upload site. After multiple videos are done uploading, they will be automatically added to your My Videos page.

What makes this new feature even more interesting is that although YouTube is a Google property, I believe that the video-sharing website seems to be giving us unlimited storage for content whereas Google gives us limited storage for Gmail, Picasa, and other services.

As pointed out by ReadWriteWeb, InterActivCorp (IAC) is also involved in the video sharing market. IAC’s Vimeo introduced HD video uploading last month. YouTube videos often times face too much video compression.
