[color=black]Google has recently added another terrific new idea to their collective of online resources. Now you can upload your own video, and (I believe) have it linked to other sites (say your blog). So you can add the video to your personal MySpace/Xanga etc. Also you can search through other people's uploaded material. It's a very interesting idea. (To upload videos, you'll need a Gmail account)[/color] [color=black]Check it out here:[/color] http://video.google.com/ [color=black]I do have one question tough. Has anyone been able to get it to work. About 48 hours ago, I sent in my first video clip, and it has been telling me that it's in the process of being verified the whole time. If you've been able to get this to work, What was the turn around time from submitting your video file, to having it verified, to having it approved? I've sent an e-mail to them with the same question and I'm still waiting to hear back. Thanks.[/color]

I've had the same problems. The best advice is to let google fix all the glitches, after all it is still beta (open beta). Don't worry google should have that problem fixed by next year. Then, I'll be uploading 50mb videos for all of you to enjoy.
Thanks for thr quick responce, this seams like a pretty cool idea, but I'll agree with you about there being a lot of bugs. Don't even get me started about the search process for finding a particulalr clip. But the potential of this Google service is interesting, to say the least. I can see people ussing it to create their own video blogs. That's a pretty cool idea. But is there anyone who can answer my question at the top about the turn-around time?

I've had this bookmarked for a while, but bugs have kept it from being used. The same is true for most of google's betas. Patience is a virtue...
I didn't make it!
i never knew google's video upload service required verification... but that probably discourages many users from uploading and just use the other conventional tools like rapidshare
No! I'm Spamacus!

Well, can't say that I blame them having everything verified. If people were allowed to their own devices a lot of the video being uploaded would probably be porn and copyrighted movies...

Hmm manual video verification would cost a lot of time, especially if you realise how popular google is. So I doubt they would do all that without adding a little pricetag...(in time). That or they have a whide range of nuttcases that are willing to verifie hundreds upon hundreds if not thousands of videos (of god may know how many MB's) for free (they may keep the pr0n they filter out? ).
Well, I'm glad to say that my clip has been verfied, and Google says it's "live," but when I go to search for it I can't find it, I've sent them another e-mail.
