Looking to find out:

  • maximum number of videos that can be uploaded into each community
  • maximum length for each video (in minutes)
  • maximum file size for each uploaded video

1 Answer 1


According to Google's Photo and video upload size options

You can upload an unlimited number of videos that are less than 15 minutes long and 1080p or lower resolution. Videos longer than 15 minutes long, or taken at a higher resolution than 1080p, will count against your Google Drive storage quota. Learn more about Google Drive storage.

Since you can now connect your G+ and YouTube accounts, the YouTube guidelines Upload videos longer than 15 minutes apply:

By default, you can upload videos that are 15 minutes long. To upload longer videos, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the upload page at www.youtube.com/my_videos_upload
  2. Click Increase your limit at the bottom of the page, or visit https://www.youtube.com/verify
  3. Follow the steps to verify your account with a mobile phone. Currently we aren’t able to offer other ways to verify your account.

YouTube Increase Your Limit

Once you’ve increased your limit, make sure you’re using an up-to-date version of your browser so you can upload files greater than 20GB.

There is no maximum number of videos.

  • Thanks for responding! I just want to make sure that those parameters you referred to (which are for personal G+ Profiles as I understand it) are in fact the same parameters that apply to content uploaded to a G+ Community, especially if the user uploading video isn't the owner of said community. There doesn't seem to be any official Community-specific media guidelines posted anywhere.
