Youtube to support longer videos for users with a clean track record
Youtube will now allow users with a good track record to upload videos longer than 15 minutes. While youtube has been largely free from pirated movies and full length TV episodes (recently ofcourse), due to their Content Id system and the restriction of uploaded video length to less than 15 minutes by regular users, this move could really test the effectiveness of their Content ID system, because pirates will try every trick in the book to bypass the automatic content recognition and filtering system that youtube employs. This could also give rise to a large number of websites offering tricks to upload copyrighted movies, by altering the audio or the video to bypass the filters. On the positive side,you will not have to slice your home movies into parts of 14.59 minutes each.We can expect some full length movies from Shay and Co..
