Goodbye Google Video

    Dear Google Video User,

    Later this month, hosted video content on Google Video will no longer be available for playback. Google Video stopped taking uploads in May 2009 and now we’re removing the remaining hosted content. We've always maintained that the strength of Google Video is its ability to let people search videos from across the web, regardless of where those videos are hosted. And this move will enable us to focus on developing these technologies further to the benefit of searchers worldwide.

    On April 29, 2011, videos that have been uploaded to Google Video will no longer be available for playback. We’ve added a Download button to the video status page, so you can download any video content you want to save. If you don’t want to download your content, you don’t need to do anything. (The Download feature will be disabled after May 13, 2011.)

    We encourage you to move to your content to YouTube if you haven’t done so already. YouTube offers many video hosting options including the ability to share your videos privately or in an unlisted manner. To learn more go here.

    Here’s how to download your videos:
    Go to the Video Status page.To download a video to your computer, click the Download Video link located on the right side of each of your videos in the Actions column.
    Once a video has been downloaded, “Already Downloaded” will appear next to the Download Video link.
    If you have many videos on Google Video, you may need to use the paging controls located on the bottom right of the page to access them all.

    Please note: This download option will be available through May 13, 2011.

    Thank you for being a Google Video user.

    Sincerely,
    The Google Video Team

    I think its really great effort to do this because Google already running an video streaming website YouTube, so their is no sense to run Google Video channel if company already has video hosting website. I have already switched to YouTube

    I've watched a few decent videos on their in the past. Some were upwards of 2 hours long which might take a bit to download. Everyone seems to be more tuned into youtube these days. There will probably be quite a few lost in the process.

    Google already has YouTube, so Google Video is useless to Google.
