How to Upload YouTube Videos Using Drag and Drop

Thumbnail image for YouTube.JPGFor those using the latest version of Google Chrome or Firefox, YouTube just made it easier to upload videos with a simple drag and drop option. When using either of the HTML5-powered browsers, you can now drag multiple videos from your desktop to anywhere on YouTube's Video File Upload page.

No longer will you have to select videos one by one and use the browse option. Files can be high definition, up to 2 GB, and up to 15 minutes long.
