YouTube announced yesterday that its upload length would increase from 10 to 15 minutes. It’s probably a move to inspire more original content on the site to compete with other video social networking sites like Vimeo or Vox. As it is now, YouTube is great for music videos, amateur home videos with viral potential and the ever-popular loony video blog rant. An increased length will (likely) inspire more creative content, pulling back in the artists’ community lost to other sites.
Still, what good is an increase that still renders me unable to listen to the entirety of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vidda? I ask you.
