2. Upload longer videos.
Have you ever created an awesome video that you are really proud of, then you try to upload it to YouTube and it says the video is too long (it exceeds 15 minutes)? It can be very frustrating, especially when YouTube offers a simple way to increase the length of videos, but it is hidden.
Simply follow these steps to activate the option:
- Visit the upload page at www.youtube.com/my_videos_upload.
- Click “Increase Your Limit” at the bottom of the page, or visit https://www.youtube.com/verify.
- Follow the steps to verify your account with a mobile phone number.
This is currently the only way to “verify” your account, but it is a very useful option to have.
