YouTube has announced that they have increased the size limit of uploaded videos.

The new limit for standard videos is set to 2GB, twice that of the previous limit. YouTube says the change means that users will be able to upload longer videos at higher resolutions, and maybe even some large HD files direct from the camera.



For those that are linking to YouTube videos, the YouTube team has also offered a tip concerning how to make sure a link starts playing a video in HD should it be available. Simply tack an "&hd=1" to the end of the URL and when it is clicked on it will begin to play in HD instead of standard definition. Follow the directions and you get a beautiful video just like the one above.
