YouTube announced on Thursday that it is extending video duration "a bit longer" for select users.
Users who have a history of complying with the YouTube Community Guidelines and copyright rules can upload videos whose duration is more than YouTube's 15-minute limit. However, the video-sharing site did not specify the exact time limit.
In a blog post, YouTube said, "As long as it's your original content, it's fair game regardless of length."
This is the second time this year that the video-sharing site has changed its length requirements. In July, the site gave users an extra five minutes, allowing videos that were a maximum of 15 minutes long.
Analysts speculated that YouTube is looking to compete with video sites such as Hulu by allowing viewers to watch half-hour and hour-long TV shows.
