    Note: The following table shows several best practices for you to choose from. 

    Search Example Description
    length:<300 Searches for videos under 5 minutes long (excluding videos that are precisely 5:00 minutes long).
    length:>600 Searches for videos over 10 minutes long (excluding videos that are precisely 10:00 minutes long).
    length:>300 AND length:<600

    Searches for videos equal or longer than 5:01 minutes and shorter than 9:59 minutes, excluding the precise durations (exclude videos that are precisely 5:00 and 10:00 minutes long).

    Note: By default, when not entering an operator the value will be treated as equals. This means that if you enter 'length:300' you are looking for videos that are exactly 5 minutes long (no more, no less). 

    length:>=300 AND length:<=600 Searches for videos equal/over 5:00 and equal/under 10:00 minutes long, with the limiting values included.
    length:[300 TO 600]


  4. Press enter/return. Relevant search results are displayed.
