Marathon clips on YouTube
Posted by Annplugged on October 10, 2006
Checking out YouTube, (now nicknamed GooTube, yet keeping its own identity and all the 67 people), is getting a regular spot during the day. I bumped into marathon clips, which confused me at first. I thought the upper limit is 10 minutes, hard and fast rule. Yet many programming session can be found that exceed 2 hours, 3 hours and even 4 hours. So how can it be? I thought Google changed the name of the game, but it turns out it is not irregularity, on the contrary:
- How long can my video be?
- Most videos on YouTube are under five minutes long. There is a 10-minute length limit (unless you have a Director account). Longer videos require more compression to fit in the 100MB size limit, and the quality will go down as the length of the video goes up.
So I guess 3DBuzz has such an account for their 2 and a half hour long Delphi training sessions. No problem with the quality either (at least for educational purposes).
