It’s a great news for all those who always be fascinated towards Video search, Video access and Video blogging. YouTube, world’s largest online Video sharing website, has extended the limit of each video upload limit from 10 minutes too 15 minutes for non-partners. With the recent change company is expecting to increase the acceptance its service to people who are not aware of video editing but have amazing videos to upload with more than 10 minutes duration.
On official grounds, company said on the YouTube blog, the video-sharing site explains that it’s been beefing up its copyright protection tools of late, i.e. the Content ID system (which lets copyright holders have more control over their content). Therefore, it’s less likely that users can, say, upload large chunks of movies and TV shows without permission.
In celebration of this added time, YouTube is also launching a contest of sorts called “15 Minutes of Fame.” Basically, all users have to do is film a 15-minute vid, tag it with “yt15minutes,” and upload it by Wednesday, August 4. The chosen videos will be featured on the YouTube homepage.
At the same time, I believe, that company is being flexible enough in terms of video upload limit due to its newly launched YouTube Leanback service where people can access YouTube on their TV sets. As we said in our earlier Leanback introduction, it would be interesting to see the acceptance of Leanback service of YouTube as still people are not used to see the TV in short frames of 10 minutes.
So do you really think that having such extension, YouTube’s extra five minutes will equate to better content, or merely more room to rant about video games, Twilight and the like? Let us know your views in comment section.
