Enabling Longer Videos in YouTube


The default length for videos is 15 minutes. Best practice standards recommend creating videos 10 minutes or less. Plan to chunk your video lectures. If you have a rare need to go longer than 15 minutes, you must change your Channel settings to enable longer videos.

  1. Click the Creator Studio button in the upper right corner of YouTube.
  2. From the Creator Studio menu on left, click Channel to change your channel settings.
  3. Click the Enable button next to Longer videos.
  4. Follow the steps to verify the account with a phone. You can choose between receiving the verification code through a text message (mobile phone) or an automated voice call.
