    As a longtime Youtuber I have dealt with all the issues that Youtube has "changed" including the limit. Today, I went to upload a video only to notice this message: "Congratulations! Your account is now enabled for uploads longer than 15 minutes. Click the Upload button below to select a video." and I apparently do not have any restrictions and [almost] unlimited privileges (I can upload up to 20GB worth of video now compared to the 2GB restriction that every other youtuber has.) and I was wondering, did anyone else get this message? I'm just wondering if it's just for me or if it's for everyone. (I'm not a Youtube partner by the way.) I wasn't sure if this was the right section to post this in either. :U

    When you get a certain number of subscribers your limits get removed.

    Forgot how many it is, but it's not something you'll get just from getting your friends/family to subscribe, it's like somewhere in the 600 range.

    I got it too. [​IMG]

    Sadly no hours limit yet, unlike those 2006 accounts.
    But still better than 10 minutes.

    A lot of TV shows are on Youtube. And some uploaders have to split its up into 3 parts or so.

    I'm pretty sure the original director accounts (before they imposed the limits) aren't limited.

    True, some videos are well over 10 minutes.

    Aside from a few videos I saw the other day that were long enough to have entire films in, there were ones such as this:

    Observe.

    Yeah if you played the game. Which I did not.

    There's a 24hour video, but it's just a picture that says "Longest Video On Youtube." So I don't really count that as a video.

    Not true, I got the message today and I only have 60 subscribers. This will make it easier to upload my LP's because I can go for as long as I want instead of stopping and editing to make sure it all fits in the time allotted. I do wonder why 60 people actually want to subscribe to me...I'm way funnier when I'm not recording XD!
