Google’s Shutting Down Google Video


Google sent out an email to all Google video users saying
that the service will no longer be available come May 13th. They said that users
who have videos up on Google video will be able to download their videos via a
download button that Google will add to the page. On April 29th, videos that are
on Google video will not longer be available for playback and users have till
May 13th to download their videos. If you don’t want to download your video,
you, of course, don’t have to do anything.




Google recommends users upload their videos to YouTube after downloading. For
users who have multiple videos up on Google video, they recommend using the
paging controls on the bottom right of the screen. To download your video, go to
the video status page, and then click on download video on the right side of the
video in the action column.




This shut down has been a long time coming, especially since Google bought
YouTube in 2006. They stopped uploads to Google video in May 2009 in their
attempt to make YouTube profitable. Shutting down Google video just seemed like
the obvious next step/
