You can't without becoming a partner. The upload limit on YouTube videos has been increased from 10 minutes to 15 minutes. One of the reasons we can increase the video time limit is that we've made incremental improvements to our Content ID technology that helps content owners manage their videos on YouTube. We look forward to increasing the upload limit ...

Don't. As Margaret Gould Stewart says during her talk: Think carefully about the policy you attach to that content. By simply blocking it, you miss out on new art forms, new audiences, new distribution channels and new revenue streams. They don't want the publicity you would have brought to your 130,000 readers for free, so I don't see why you should ...

YouTube have a process for overriding the content matching system in cases like this. You can dispute the Content ID match (I presume there is an option to claim fair use), and then the copyright owner has to manually review the match and decide if they still want the video taken down. If they do want it taken down then you can take it a step further and ...

Sure! You can use the HTML5 version of YouTube. All you need is a web browser that supports both the video tag in HTML5 and either the h.264 video codec or the WebM format (with VP8 codec). These include: Firefox (WebM enabled version available here) Google Chrome (h.264 supported now, WebM enabled version available via Early Release Channel) Opera (WebM ...

What you are wanting to do is not possible. Quote from YouTube Help (Replace old video with a new one): There is currently no way to replace an old video with a new one and retain the original view count, comments or ratings. You'll have to start over with your newer video.

Four points that make HTML5 not so hot for YouTube: Cannot point to a particular point in a video with the #t=21m0s portions Cannot watch content protected videos Full Screen Support (currently does full browser screen) Recording directly to YouTube with a webcam On Firefox and Opera, only videos with WebM transcodes will play in HTML5 (found this one on ...

Under OS X (and probably on Linux too) the HTML5 video playback uses far less CPU than the Flash video player. This might change when hardware acceleration is released in the OS X Flash Player (currently available as a beta http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/gala/)

Full Disclosure: I am the lead developer on the site I'm mentioning... If you can get the URL to the .FLV file (just google 'how to get FLV URL youtube'), Upload by Transfer is what we call it. That feature gets released next week on our platform (see blog post for details). You provide the URL to the FLV, and the cloud service pulls it off and transcodes ...

If you use a HTML5 compatible browser, you can play videos at 1/2 or 1/4 playback speed using the YouTube HTML5 player. You can visit http://www.youtube.com/html5 to join the beta or add &html5=1 to any video.

It should't be possible and I hope it's not. The reason is simple: Let's say you are uploading one really interesting video that goes viral with few millions views and then you are changing it to something completely boring. Wouldn't it be a little bit confusing for the new viewers on why exactly this video got so many views? I think you can make few tweaks ...

Yes it is removed from the blog post as well. These videos are embedded in your blog so there is a direct link to anything that happens on the hosting site. The video will appear to still be viewable on your site, but the moment you click play you should see otherwise. To keep it on your site, you will need to host the video yourself.

Poor YouTube performance may be due to the following issues: Poor internet connectivity (500Kb/s is recommended). Server load on YouTube, which can be caused by too many simultaneous viewers. Issues with your browser cache. Issue # 1 can be addressed by signing up with an ISP which provides faster internet connectivity. Issue # 3 can be addressed by ...

The first thing to do is ask yourself: Which stations do I actually need? Because NO ONE watches all the stuff that their cable gives them - that's a large number of channels, many of which appeal to a niche audience, and you are unlikely to actually need (or want) them all. Once you have a list of things you want to watch, figure out how many are on that ...

As for the first part of your question, that can be accomplished by adding the URL parameter rel=0 to the YouTube URL embedded in your player HTML code. Like so: <embed width="560" height="349" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VvosvdWfmas?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" allowFullScreen="true" ...

Now that Google seems to be leaning towards "Google Photos" or whatever they're going to call it, you can download your Picasa Web videos. Here's how: Go to the Google+ version of your site ( http://www.google.com/+ ). On the left hand side, click on the "Photos" icon. Find and click on the album with the video you want to download. Find and click on ...

As far as Facebook, the web site, goes -- you can't. They don't provide any way to download the videos via the Facebook website that I know of. One alternative is to use browser extensions that allow you to download videos from, in fact, any web page: Download Helper (Firefox) DownloadHelper is a tool for web content extraction. Its purpose is to ...

YouTube support a number of different options for uploading: WebM - VP8 for video, which really isn't that great MPEG4 (h264) - pretty much the standard AVI - a container format, not a codec MPEG2 (DivX, XviD) - higher filesizes for similar quality as compared to h264 WMV - not used by many outside of Microsoft for good reason FLV - previously used to ...

We use DimDim (http://www.dimdim.com) for this at work and with several organizations I belong to. It's an open source (free of cost) option for web meetings that allows you to share your screen, do VOIP and choose presenters. I don't think it lets you do recordings yet - but you can use Skype for that if you want.

Fancast http://Fancast.com is probably the best option for what you are looking for. Although that's not saying much. Here are a few other options as well: Jinni: http://www.jinni.com/ was recommended by phwd as well. Get Glue (as recommended by tsodermann below) does something similar to what you are looking for as well: http://getglue.com Hulu: ...

Vimeo has a Universal Player; http://vimeo.com/blog:334 Instead of being a direct link to a Flash player the new Universal Player can automatically detect what kind of device is viewing the video and choose the optimum player based on the device's capabilities. Hope this helps.

NASA TV has switched to H.264 video over either Flash (for most browsers) or HTML5 (for iOS). If Flash plugin is unacceptable, you'll need to fake your userAgent as an iPad and go to http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/nasatv_live_iphone.html

You'd probably have to write your own youtube player to do it. They have coded it this way on purpose, it really cuts down on the bandwidth on youtube's servers. Think about all the people that might visit a site, but not click the button...they would still download the file anyways, wasting both their and google's bandwidth.

YouTube's video player has no native feature to change playback speed. However, there is a shareware app which lets you change the speed of videos played on online players: MySpeed! Online video is everywhere – lectures, labs, tutorials, certification courses, seminars, news, sports and, of course, YouTube! MySpeed from Enounce lets you change the ...

You have nearly no control over facebook's internals. They are known to work on an eventual consistency basis, which could affect whether you see things that you post or upload, particularly from different devices and networks. I would advise re-uploading the video. You can always delete one of the copies if it turns up twice.

Side note: If you are leaving a comment on the video you can't use the full link (Youtube bans all links in comments), but you can use a simple "mm:ss" format in your comment on Youtube to automatically create a link to that point in the video. I haven't seen this documented anywhere but it comes in handy for quick links. Also it uses Javascript instead of ...
