YouTube Changes February 23, 2011

Posted by Maniac in Site News.

For those of you who have wondered why I didn’t post any content yesterday, especially after what I promised on the twitter feed yesterday, you can blame YouTube for that.

They give and they take away it seems. I had an account which in December was granted the capabilities to post videos in excess of 15 minutes. Yesterday, when I tried to upload the first part of the series I had scheduled this week (a video of 22 minutes in length), it was rejected due to length. It seems my ability to post videos of any length was quietly taken away from me by YouTube. I have to this point posted videos in excess of 30 minutes over the past two months which are still active, so why can I no longer post videos of a reasonable length anymore?

YouTube did not provide any explanation to why they took away my 15+ minute ability. My account is in good standing and has not been blocked. Nor did I post too many videos in excess of that time duration while I could.

Regardless, the fact I’m currently limited to 15 minute videos again will severely impact video uploads, and some series like “So, What Happened?” will have to be re-examined.

I wish I had better news to report, but I was planning an entire series this week which was already shot and partially edited (which I worked on with a new site contributor), and because of this it will have to be trashed.
