My old youtube account I've had for such a long time (even the old NGW youtube account is subscribed :D) hasnt really had a good "let's play" or "walkthrough" kinda of feel, and I was hoping there was a way I could transfer all my information (subscribers, subscriptions, videos) to my new "lets play" youtube account, ( www.youtube.com/theoakshaft ) I looked around a bit on Google, couldn't find anything other then stuff about re-claiming channels from copyright. So is there a way to transfer it all?

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Oh and btw, how exactly do you get the privilege to upload videos longer then 15 minutes? My old account isn't partnered but I still can upload longer.

There is no way. You have to start all brand new, which is incredibly annoying but it's just the way YouTube decides to work. If there was a way, I'm 99.99% sure NGW would have done that when they made their WGG channel, and I know I would have done it when I made a new channel.

I don't think anybody really knows how to get your account enabled for uploads longer than 15 minutes. From what I've found, as long as you don't have ANY Copyright ID matches of any sort (even if they're bullcrap ones) then you just have to wait for it to tell you on the Upload page that you can upload longer than 15 minutes.

But that can be taken away instantly if a video you upload does get hit by Copyright. It will usually come back if you delete that video though.
