Instead of wiping out Google Videos’s entire library, which made no sense, Google has relented and is allowing the videos to migrate to YouTube, once their eponymous video service sunsets.
Google Video users can rest assured that they won’t be losing any of their content and we are eliminating the April 29 deadline. We 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.
Still can’t believe this was instituted because of public outcry and not because it was painfully obvious from the start.
