  • Title - No more than 255 characters.

    • Tags can't contain commas. For example, a tag of "roof, attic + front yard" is not supported.
    • A video can have no more than a total of 1200 tags.
    • A tag differing only in case (lowercase, uppercase) is handled as an identical tag and the case will automatically match those of the original tag.
