Google Announcment: Uploaded video content no longer available

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 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.)

Sounds in direct conflict with this one from the more answers link:
Quote:
Will all of the videos in my Google Video account be deleted?No. The videos that are already in your account will remain hosted by Google Video. You will still have access to all the existing management tools for them.

As far as I am aware, Google video was being used as a backbone of sorts for youtube, for a little while at least. They're probably changing the youtube background infrastructure and don't need Google video anymore.

P.S: I get 403 forbidden on those links?;;;

Some Users of G-Video wondered if G would do a transfer to Ytube, but that is unlikely.
Quote:
  • Can you transfer all of my videos to YouTube or Picasa?
While we encourage you to move your content, we are unable to transfer it for you.
Read into that what you may, YMMV.


Does the statement:
Quote:

No. The videos that are already in your account will remain hosted by Google Video. You will still have access to all the existing management tools for them.
Mean that you can play them for yourself or you can only edit them?

It is in contradiction to their opening statement:
Quote:

This is a Creative rights issue.
You use their hosting, they keep what you post. I just wish they were much more clear on the matter.

I do not have any Videos on Gvid. I am just posting for those that are unaware.

And Users of Gvid should hustlebuttt on over there and get their "stuff" off of Gvid.
Now do not forget you will only be downloading a copy of your work.

Good point Fayla!

Your 403 may mean that your security is blocking those links.

Yup, you're right. Now that I've slept and gotten consciousness back... I found that particular Google sub domain blocked under the adult content filter area of my router.
