We're excited to unveil our new and improved video uploader. A random sample of YouTube users have already been using the beta version, but now we're inviting everybody to check out this more streamlined uploading experience. Just login to your YouTube account and click this link [youtube.com]to opt in. The new video upload flow includes these cool features:
You can enter in your video's metadata (title, description, tags, etc.) while the upload is processing.
Upload multiple files at once, without downloading a plugin (separate progress bars will display for each file).
The file-size limit for uploads has been raised from 100MB to 1GB.
There are two ways to upload your video: by using our Single File Uploader or the YouTube Uploader (for multiple files). With either of these methods, your videos can be up to 1GB in size and 10 minutes long.
