What are the limits for uploading with the API?

The following limits exist for uploading videos through the Data API:

  • Videos can be no longer than 10 minutes.
  • Videos can be no larger than 100 megabytes.
  • One account can have no more than 1000 videos.

If you want to aggregate user-contributed videos into searchable groups, please consider using developer tags and having the videos uploaded to the user's YouTube account.
