    That's great, people can finally enjoy unrestricted video length for legal things.

    People have tricks for bypassing this Content ID system though, they flip the video's image or overlay a faint audio track.

    I could've sworn it said "Up to 10 minutes in length" last time I uploaded a video, which was a few weeks ago.

    Holy cupcakes.

    No, the 15 minute limit was global for everybody and that was a bit ago, this is talking about a different one.

    If yours is unlocked it will tell you at the top.

    My account got updated. Yay.

    Not like I need it though. Since my account is basically just jailbreak videos for the jailbreak guide. Which is by no means ever

    My account got updated too [​IMG] Although I don't think I would ever need to upload anything over 15min.

    Why do I have to be the guy without the upgrade?

    Wah. Most of my crap is original.

    Eh, I also did not get the upgrade.. I'm sorry if posting a Guitar Hero video nearly 3 years ago offended anybody.. [​IMG]

    Besides, if the GB limit is still 2, won't that in the end restrict video size?

    Mine isn't. I can't remember how many times I 'broke' the rules, in fact, I can't even remember breaking them a single time (at least with this account).

    Nice. I just checked my YT account and it says I can upload longer than 15 minutes. Have to try it out now!
