Google Video Closing Down (All Content WILL be Lost)

Google Video Closing Down (All Content WILL be Lost)
Quote:Uploaded video content no longer available

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 new window 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.)


How do I download videos that I've uploaded?

On the Video Status page, click Download Video located on the right side of each of your videos in the "Actions" column.Once a video has been downloaded, an "Already Downloaded" message will appear. 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.

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


I've downloaded my videos. Now what do I do with these FLV files?

FLV files are videos that have been encoded in the Flash Video Format. You can upload your videos in FLV format to other video hosting sites like YouTube or Picassa Web Albums. If you would like to playback your videos on your computer and they don’t seem to be working, you might need to install an FLV player. In order to find an FLV player to install, try doing a Google search for [ FLV player ].

Thanks Dunamis - meant to post about this here. I figured everyone got the Email if they were content contributors but then there are many who might go to check an old bookmark one day and give a great big WTF?!

They're consolidating videos with YouTube model of 15 minute clips for those poor saps of generation shagged and tagged with with ads, micro payments, paid premium content memberships, profit sharing for a slice of their life and all that fun stuff.

Here's a few of my Google Video bookmarked vids that I haven't gotten around to watching yet. They might be elsewhere but best I post them now so ppl have a chance to watch or DL them via online video download tools such as savevid or keepvid.

Most of these are likely up on the tracker or available but I found it easiest just to throw them all up for now as it was easiest for me.

Personally, I don't endorse all of them many were actually bookmarked to debunk but I'll leave that for the individual to sort out.


This impacts video aggregation sites like topdocumentaryfilms.com since they stream a lot of their content off of Google Video. We do a lot of embedding of Google Video here at ConCen too.

Should be interesting to see where longer content migrates and what Google/YouTube does to accommodate this if it does anything at all with it's massive servers and private pipeline.

Guess Google PR thinks that we/they can't call it censorship and pin the Google is Evil badge if they just upgrade, mass deletion or lose a thwack of content in the migration (see The Digg v4 "Upgrade").

I'll keep bumping this until the close down date, I think people can understand why. I have been getting things gradually.

If you have ANY bookmarks and cannot get them yourself, at least let post the titles and urls
so others can try getting as much as possible.

I keep running blanks for search queries now that I've downloaded a fair amount.

We should look especially for things not found elsewhere, as there is a LOT of stuff there and people have relied on google to host it, rather than saving it 'just in case'. Now the time is short!

I've flagged a few the videos on topdocumentaryfilms in this thread that are embedded via Google Video for the archive project.

If they aren't on the tracker already - maybe they should be to preserve access.

Heck no.

Google Video only since they own YouTube now they can save bandwidth overhead, deployment, maintenance and administrative costs by pushing user created video content under their YouTube banner.

There are many links at http://www.trueworldhistory.info that link to google video. That would be a good place for people to start if they want to start d/l'ing from google vid, but have forgotten video titles, ect.

Seems she's still up -- didn't hear about them extending the deadline or anything - maybe a grace period.

Still - It could be shut down any day now.

Take this opportunity to archive what you can and up it to the tracker if you like.

Use an online program like keepVid or whatever suits your fancy to archive the videos.
