"The upload has failed because you uploaded too many videos in a short time" ???

Hi

I tend to upload multiple videos at once and they are around 30 secs each.  I haven't had a problem with it for 2 years now but now I keep getting this msg:

"The upload has failed because you uploaded too many videos in a short time. You'll need to wait before uploading more videos."

After I upload about 20 videos and then I can't upload anymore.  Only like 1 every 30 mins after that.  So basically I am only allowed to upload 10 mins of footage at a time now ?  Why?

I can't read anywhere about this upload limit even after I copy paste the message to Google search.

Why is this happening now?

Why is this happening now?
Probably because YouTube has now implemented more techniques to combat spam. Unfortunately, there are channels that upload tenthousands of videos per day and spam the site with it. And where exactly the line is drawn between spam and not spam is not always clear and almost always lead to legitimate users being inconvenienced. 

I can try getting your complaints to the right team though.

The exact same error message is happening for our channel, We've never had this problem before today, 2/27. How many videos are now too many, and how long is the wait?
