YouTube Doubles Maximum File Size on Uploads to 2 GB

June 26, 2009

Back in September 2008, YouTube increased the maximum size of video uploads tenfold, from 100MB to 1GB. In the past day, it appears that they’ve at least doubled it, from 1GB to 2GB. Despite the size increase, the maximum length of a video remains 10 minutes.

I’ve heard reports that people are seeing a 20GB limit on YouTube accounts. That seems very unlikely to be the case across all of YouTube, but as of yet, there’s no official word from the company on the change.

My account shows the 2GB limit:

In any event, even just increasing to 2GB should make it significantly easier for video publishers to get their longer, HD videos onto the site.

What size limit are you seeing in your YouTube account? Let us know in the comments.
