    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.

    "Congratulations! Your account is now enabled for uploads longer than 15 minutes. Click the Upload button below to select a video."

    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!
