Increase your video length limit
Maximum upload size
By default, you can upload videos that are up to 15 minutes long. Verified accounts can upload videos longer than 15 minutes. We've changed the limits on uploads in the past, so you may see older videos that are longer than 12 hours. If you could previously upload long videos and no longer can, check your account for copyright claims and strikes. If your video is larger than GB, try compressing your video in a video editing software before uploading it to YouTube. Compressing will reduce your video file size while maintaining the video quality. One common way to compress a video for YouTube is to encode it using the H. Google Help.

Change privacy for playlists you've created
YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, favorites, share, add to playlists, flag, report, comment on videos , and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips , TV show clips, music videos , short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers , live streams , and other content such as video blogging , short original videos, and educational videos. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old. YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense , a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium , subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. Karim said the inspiration for YouTube first came from Janet Jackson 's role in the Super Bowl incident , when her breast was exposed during her performance, and later from the Indian Ocean tsunami.
When you publish a video to YouTube , most of the time you'll probably want to mark it as Public, so anyone can see it. But you can also choose to make a video Unlisted, so you need to know the URL to find it, or Private, so only you can see it. But even private videos can be shared — it's just as little harder to do.
