You can now upload up to a gigabyte movie on Youtube

TODAY'S SPOTLIGHT... Bigger, faster, stronger YouTube

YouTube has responded to market pressure from smaller firms and made significant changes to its upload policy, including increasing the maximum file upload from 100MB to 1GB. Users will now be able to add metadata and title information while the video is being uploaded and upload up to 10 videos simultaneously.
Users must opt-in to the service, which is available here.
This play should help YouTube, far and away the present online video leader, keep more market share that could have started drifting to other sites that offered larger uploads and concurrent meta-data input ability.
