YouTube is a website for people to communicate more efficiently with video by sharing, commenting on, and viewing videos. The site was originally started as a personal video sharing service, and has rapidly grown into the leading video entertainment destination on the Internet, helping to pave the way for social networking to evolve into the many catacombs that is has indeed become, and the newest YouTube feature is setting a higher standard in video sharing.
YouTube’s Multi-Video Uploader allows members to upload videos that are up to 1 gigabyte in size, compared to the previous limit of 100 megabytes. But note, a video must still be no longer than 10 minutes. And of course the main purpose behind this feature: the ability to upload many videos at once. So why is YouTube doing this? It is speculated that Youtube is trying to compete with another social networking video site (Vimeo), which announced it will now support high definition videos.
