YouTube has announced an updated video uploader and bumped up the maximum file size for uploads.
A random sample of YouTube users have already been using the beta version.
YouTube is opening up the streamlined uploader to everyone; just login to your YouTube account and click this link to opt in.
The new video upload tool 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.
The updates help keep YouTube competitive with other video sites.
