Here’s how to upload a video longer than 15 minutes.
Split the video
You can upload by editing the video and dividing it into less than 15 minutes each.
You can number the split videos, such as 1, 2, 3 in the title , and clearly state that there is a video following the description.

STEP2. Raise the upper limit
Click the upload button to change the page .
Then, there is an item “Increase the upper limit” near the center of the screen, so click on it.

Check file format
The video file formats supported by YouTube are as follows.
Only these file formats can be uploaded, so convert to one of the above file formats before uploading.
I get the message “The server rejected the file”
When you try to upload a video, you may get the message “Server rejected file”.
In this case, special characters may be used as part of the file name. Change the
file name to text characters such as alphabets and numbers, and then try uploading again.
I get the message “Rejected (duplicate upload)”
If you get the message “Rejected (duplicate upload)”, it’s possible that the same video has already been registered.
Even if the file names are different, if the contents of the video are exactly the same, you will get an error like this.

Tagging makes it easier to be introduced as a related video. You can enter the
tag on the edit page of the basic information of the uploaded video .
How to write tags
As a basic way to write tags , you need to register them with words and separate them with commas.
Input of sentences is NG.

The number of tags is usually 10 to 20 at maximum.
If you register an unrelated keyword, it seems unlikely that it will be displayed as a related video.
5. How to upload MP3 audio

various tools and apps so that you can upload it, but I will show you how to convert it to a video as easily as possible using a tool called “TunesToTube”.

Then , enter the title , description, tag, etc., and after waiting for a while, it will be converted and uploading to YouTube will be completed.
