longer than 15 minutes video for youtube

I understand that you can put up to a 15 minute video on youtube. If your video is longer than that, how do you split it up so that you can have two portions of your, say 25 minute, video on youtube.

Two ways to do that. Both of them involve finding a good spot in your movie to split it at. The exact point is a bit of an art.

1) Save two copies of your project. In the first copy, delete everything out after the split point. Delete everything until the split point in the second copy. Save movie files from each for both parts.
2) Save the movie file for your entire project. Import the saved movie into Movie Maker and split it at the appropriate point. If you are in a classic version of Movie Maker, you can do the split in the collection and then one section to the timeline of a blank project. Save that as a Movie and drag the other section to the timeline of another new project and save that movie file. In WLMM, I would first save the project with both sections still in there and then make a second copy of the project. Then delete out the appropriate section from each project and save the movie files. That way your split point is consistent.
