YouTube boosts upload limit to 1GB

Web 2.0

The quality of your homemade masterpiece could be considerably improved after YouTube announced it had increased the size limit for videos to 1GB from the 100MB currently in use. And it has also introduced new desktop-based software that allows users to simultaneously upload multiple videos.

The increased file size should mean less compression, which should boost the quality of clips on the site. The multi-uploader is likely to lead to an increase in ‘split’ content – movies or shows that are split into instalments due to the limit on the length of a clip.

That’s good news, but only if you are a PC uploader – the software is only compatible with Windows machines right now.
