HD Video Files are Big
We’ve raised the video filesize limit for our Pro members to 500MB (from 150).
When we were working on adding HD to Flickr a few months back we were testing with one of those really little cute HD video cameras. The (90 seconds or less) files that came out of it were so cute and small that 150 MB seemed like more than enough.
But then we launched, and heard back from our members that their cameras were not quite as small-minded. And we got some HD cameras. 150 MB was not enough.
