YouTube is definitely the #1 video sharing website on the Internet. YouTube, by default, doesn’t allow you to upload videos that exceed 15 minutes in length. Wonder, how some people upload several hours of videos on YouTube? That can be possible with you too, if your YouTube account is validated with your mobile phone number.
Doing so will let you upload videos to a maximum of 12 hours in length or 20 GB in size. Isn’t it cool!
How to Upload Videos Longer Than 15 Minutes on YouTube?
- Log-in to YouTube account.
- Click “Upload”.
- You’ll now see a phrase that says “Upload HD videos in various formats up to 15 minutes. Increase your limit”.
