From the YouTube blog [youtube.com]:

We're happy to announce that the size of standard uploads has doubled from 1GB to 2GB. The increase means you can upload longer videos at a higher resolution as well as large HD files directly from your camera.

and

To share a link to the HD version of your video, simply append &hd=1 to the end of the URL. This means the video will start playing in HD as soon as someone follows the link.

Does Google enjoy losing money with YouTube?

They have doubled the file upload size, but failed to increase the maximum length. You're still limited to 10 minute videos.

Length of videos would be great.... We do seminars that are more than 10 min ... Size limit is cool but it would be nice to one day get that perk like other video sharing sites offer.
