Google Video To Enter The ‘Deadpool’ For Good
Google Video Prepares To Enter The ‘Deadpool’ For Good
(April 15, 2011 – Jason Kincaid @ TechCrunch.Com)
Looks like Google Tags wasn’t the only product on the chopping block today — now Google Video, the mostly-forgotten service that was once YouTube’s rival, is getting the axe too. Google just sent out an e-mail to users, who have previously uploaded content to the service, informing them that on April 29 2011, the site will no longer host any more videos. Users are being encouraged to download and reupload their files to YouTube. The news was first reported yesterday, by CenterNetworks.
GOOGLE: “Uploaded Video Content, No Longer Available After April 29, 2011” “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 videos that you want to save. If you don’t want to download your videos, you don’t need to do anything. (The Download feature will be disabled after May 13, 2011.)” (Google’s Vague Statement)
