Upload Blu-ray/DVD to YouTube


Before making YouTube videos about films you love, and as such need to rip Blu-Ray and DVD’s to edit them, you need to learn  the limitation of YouTube:


Limitation of the Uploading Video Size


The videos that users try to upload to YouTube may be rejected for many reasons, and first comes the YouTube video size. YouTube allows standard accounts to upload videos up to 2 gigabytes, equivalent to HD video with lengths of less than 10 minutes. YouTube upload size limit is waived for partnership accounts.


Tip: If your video is too large to be uploaded to YouTube, you can just take advantage of a lu-ray to YouTube Converter to compress your video into video formats with smaller size like FLV, MP4, AVI, 3GP, etc.


Limitation of the Uploading Video Length


Following the YouTube video size limit comes the limit of YouTube video length. Since 2010, YouTube has increased its allowed video length to 15 minutes. This move is to match up with 2 gigabyte YouTube size limit as well as to respond the most-asked request from users. However, no length restrictions are set for partnership accounts who can freely upload videos of any size and length to YouTube.


Tip: A good Blu-ray to YouTube Converter can also help you cut and trim your video into the ideal length for YouTube while keep all the highlights as you want.


Limitation of the Uploading Video Formats


Even if both your size and length of the YouTube videos are within the limits, you may sometimes still be rejected when you upload video to YouTube. Only a few video formats can be uploaded to YouTube. Before uploading video to YouTube, you shall make sure if the video is well compatible with YouTube. Below are the formats supported by YouTube:


• MP4 (a multimedia container format standard specified as a part of MPEG-4)
• FLV (Flash Video, a kind of video format )
• AVI (Audio Video Interleaved, a kind of video format)
• MOV (the QuickTime multimedia file format)
• 3GP (a multimedia container format defined by the Third Generation Partnership Project for 3G UMTS multimedia services.)
• MKV (an free container format that holds an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file)
• MPEG (the Moving Picture Experts Group, a kind of video format)
• WMV (Windows Media Video)
• SWF (Shockwave Flash)


Note: MP4 is suggested by YouTube as the best video format which can produce the best video quality and can easily meet the YouTube upload size limit.


So, in order to upload Blu-ray/DVD to YouTube, you will need a 3rd party Blu-ray ripping software to convert Blu-ray and DVD to MP4, FLV, AVI, WMV (and so on), that are supported by YouTube.
