Google Video shuts down
Posted by pratyushkp
Google has decided to shut down its video service and has reminded all its users to download their videos before May 13th after which all videos would be unavailable.
Google has further added April 29th, the videos will no longer be available for viewing on the site. However, the downloading function will be available for few weeks after that. Google had stopped adding videos on this site two years ago but they still haven’t transferred these videos to Youtube or Picassa.
Although in the mail to the users of Google videos, it advised them to move their videos to Youtube but the site does not provide for this option. Thus the users have to follow the entire downloading from Google videos and then uploading it to Youtube on their own. Many users feel that it is a very odd move as Google should have created a way where they could automatically transfer their videos to other sites like You tube.
