    Increasing YouTube upload limits

    jd_megason

      I want to publish a video to YouTube through Premier Elements but it has a 15 minute limit.  YouTube allows for longer upload limits.  Is there a way to get this accomplished through Premier?

          What version of Premiere Elements and what computer operating system is involved?

           

          To your immediate question - You Tube extended time accounts that work at the YouTube web site do not work in the Premiere Elements built in YouTube feature.

           

          If you want to include Premiere Elements in your YouTube plan, then you need to export the Premiere Elements Timeline content to a file saved to the computer hard drive and then upload that file from there to YouTube at the YouTube web site where you applied for and use your YouTube extended time account.

           

          The suggested format for the Premiere Elements export to file is AVCHD.mp4. In Premiere Elements 11, 12, and 13, choice is found

          Publish+Share/Computer/AVCHD with Presets = one of the .mp4 presets (example MP4 H.264 1920 x 1080p30 or YouTube Widescreen HD (with default 1280 x 720 p24).

           

          Any questions or need clarification about the above, please ask.

           

          Thank you.

            I have the very same annoyance with Premier Elements.  This limit of 15 mins makes no sense at all.  Infact, the youtube limit before was 10 mins then they lifted that for pretty much everyone.   Yet, Adobe still keeps a hard coded limit?

              Not sure what is was before for YouTube, but, from what I read, the lift was up to 15 minutes for all. You can upload more than 15 minutes there only if you apply for and get an extended time account.

                Yeah, you don't have to apply at all.  You just need to verify your account once you have a couple of videos uploaded.    At any rate, there are requests for this limit to be remove/adjustable for a couple of years now and it seems that the issue is either too difficult for Adobe to fix or perhaps they see no value in it to make the change.  Both are horrible since this is something that people what and are paying for and frankly it's a very simple fix that could have been applied to any of the last 2 or 3 releases.
