    It's about god damn time huh?

    Now if only they'd remove this pesky new subscriptions toolbar during videos that auto-expands when you mouse over, and can't disable the auto-play, and looks totally broken.

    Not much of an improvement... Director accounts are better.
    Still an improvement though, but something like 30 min would be much better.

    I recommend using this script http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/33042 which can disable auto-play and can get rid of some annoyances.

    And they shouldn't! I like your vids, not too long and they give enough information to get me going.

    I remember the time when having a Director account would allow you to upload videos as long as you liked. Ah, good times. Too bad they changed that though, because just when I almost finished watching a film (can't remember which one it was, probably Pokémon or so) they removed that privilege and removed nearly all vids longer than 10 minutes. So I had to find another way to watch that film (which at the time wasn't as convenient as it is now, I think I was 10 [​IMG]). I couldn't, and because I forgot the name of the film I haven't ever seen the end [​IMG]

    Anyway, this is good news, now some vids won't have to be cut in multiple parts anymore, although it is still not as long as it should be.

    I don't see the point to extending the limit Youtube was always about quick funny 4-5 minutes clips anything longer than that seems drawn out.

    Yay, I suppose.

    Is it me or is their player really really buggy now? If I pause a video to let it load and then unpause it, it'll stay paused even if the button has changed to the ||. That's only one of the things that I can name off the top of my head, but I seem to encounter a lot of bugs. Youtube is probably one of my most disliked online video players now. How's it's fallen...
