Emails to all Google Video users late last week, notified that it was going to shutdown the video portal. Videos won’t be available for viewing starting April 29. Registered users can downlaod their previously uploaded videos until May 13 via a download button that Google will add to the page.
Google recommends users upload their videos to YouTube after downloading.
This shut down has been a long time coming, especially since Google bought YouTube in 2006. Uploads to Google video have stopped from may 2009 . But Google’s decision to finally close down its Google Video property and delete all content hosted there is facing some resistance.
