It used to be that you could only upload one video at a time on Youtube and the video had to be no larger than 100 MB in file size.
I just noticed the other day (not sure when this was released) that you can now upload multiple films/videos to youtube up to one gigabyte in file size with their multi-video uploader tool. I downloaded the tool and it worked like a charm. I was able to upload 2 videos that were HD quality and roughly 200 MB each.
My suspicion is that with so many sites launching and preparing to enable and launch High-definition video, Youtube is taking a first step towards enabling HD. In addition, there have been many, including myself, that have complained about the quality of videos on Youtube as a result of the level of compression required for the previous 100 MB file size limit. So, as a result, we should look for more high quality videos on Youtube in the near future. Of course, more high quality crap videos as well. ;-)
Here are the specifics of this new tool:
- Upload multiple files at once
- Small install required
- Windows only (Mac coming shortly)
- Each uploaded video is limited to 10 min and 1 GB
Download the software here so you can upload multiple videos.
