(Newser) – Because the world doesn't spend nearly enough time watching goofy videos: Fifteen-minute vids can now be uploaded to YouTube, a bump from the previous 10-minute cap. YouTube said lifting the limit was the most requested change from users, but one that took considerable effort, given the site's ever-increasing storage. In March, the company said 24 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube every minute, notes CNET.
