Is there a limit on YouTube for the duration of my video?

By default, you can upload videos that are up to 15 minutes long, but you can upload longer videos by following the steps below to verify your account. If your YouTube account is verified for live streaming access, video uploads with a duration exceeding 15 minutes are allowed by default.

To upload longer videos, verify your account with the following steps:

1. On a computer, go to the upload page at youtube.com/upload.
2. At the bottom of the page, click Increase your limit. You can also go directly to https://www.youtube.com/verify
3. Follow the steps to verify your account. You can choose to receive a verification code through a text message on a mobile phone or an automated voice call.
4. Once you've verified your account, you can upload videos that are longer than 15 minutes.

Make sure you’re using an up-to-date version of your browser so you can upload files greater than 20GB. The maximum file size you can upload to YouTube is 128GB.
