Today, I’m heading in the opposite direction, sharing the latest news from the biggest name in online video.
YouTube announced this week that it users can now upload videos as large as 1 gigabyte. Up till now, users were limited to a measly 100 megabytes for their uploads. The new video uploader is now available to anyone who wants to opt in. It also lets you edit your clip’s metadata during upload.
This is good news to anyone who desires to post longer or higher-quality video to the service.
Much of these features were already available from other services, but it indicates that YouTube really does have a view of what’s going on in the market and wants to stay competitive in that space even though it’s still the de facto leader.
