    Ok, if you are wondering what are the max chars allowed for the title, desc and tag fields on youtube then read this.

    Title - Max 100 bytes
    Description - Max 5000 bytes
    Tags - Max 500 bytes
    Maximum length for a multiword tag is 30 bytes (quotes and spaces are counted).

    So what the hell is a byte ?
    One byte = 1 character (a, b, c, 1, !, etc)

    Enjoy and don't abuse this info. It just good to know how far you can go ;)

    next time, ensure the title of the thread reflects the contents... it was too general.
