Just in case you had any doubt that Google had a heck of a lot of server space, the company has increased the file size limit for uploads to Google Video. A few days ago, the max was 1GB. Today, it's a whopping 16GB
In order to take advantage, you'll need a few things:
- A Google Apps Premier or Education Edition account
- Google Gears
- A fairly speedy internet connection (unless you're cool with your videos taking a year or two to upload)
The change only affects Google Video, not Google's other video site. YouTube uploads are still limited to 2GB. Google also killed uploads to Google Video
for the general public a while back, limiting the feature to Google Apps users. So it's doubtful that the company really expects to buckle under the pressure of all those 16GB file uploads.
