What is the longest video on YouTube?

The longest video on YouTube is labelled accordingly and spans 596.5 hours, which is the equivalent of 24 days, 20 hours and some change.

YouTube has grown to become a bottomless archive of videos. Over 1.3 billion videos are already available to watch on the platform, with an estimated 300 hours’ worth of viewing content which is uploaded per minute.

Basically, you could spend a lifetime attempting to watch all the videos available on YouTube, and most probably not even get through half of the content available on the platform.

However, this allows for YouTube watchers to have diverse viewing options.

Moreover, the variety opens room for weird and interesting searches, which one can do on YouTube and attempt to see if there is a video that will pop up under the search.

Think of how fun it is to attempt to challenge Google with a search, but this time, with videos. One of those popular searches is the public’s search for the longest video on YouTube.

This might come as a surprise, but a video out there does indeed hold the record for the longest video on YouTube. Moreover, the title of the video is THE LONGEST VIDEO ON YOUTUBE – 595.5 HOURS.

The video was uploaded on the channel, Moldy Toaster Media by YouTuber, Jonathan Harchick. The video’s duration, when converted into days, is 24 days, 20 hours, 31 minutes and 26 seconds.

Harchick uploaded the video in December 2011. The video has over 3.5 million views to date, on a channel that currently has more than 57 400 subscribers.

This is not the only video of this nature that Harchick has posted, it is reported that in 2012, he posted another video of the same nature, which is 0.5 hours shorter and is titled THE LONGEST VIDEO ON YOUTUBE – 596 HOURS.

The other content on Harchick’s channel does not follow this format, as it consists of shorter educational videos.
