How to upload long videos on YouTube
If your YouTube account was not verified, you will not be able to upload videos longer than 15 minutes. Due to Google policy, it is made to prevent robots from creating accounts and uploading countless and endless videos. After you verify your YouTube account, Google will lift the block, so you will be able to upload videos up to 128GB of size and no more than 11 hours long.
