Recently search giant Google notified owners of video content on Google Video that the site would be officially shutdown on April 29. Effective April 29, videos would no longer be available for playback, and users had until May 13 to download content.
As Google stopped to allow video uploads since 2009, the Google video site still contains almost 3 million videos. Many users complained that Google hadn’t made any easy way to transfer content over to YouTube.
On Friday Google announced that they will be working to automatically migrate your Google Videos to YouTube. In the meantime, your videos hosted on Google Video will remain accessible on the web and existing links to Google Videos will remain accessible.
