As expected, your, mine and every one’s favorite blogging platform WordPress has just unleashed WordPress 2.9. WordPress 2.9 is simply sensational for many reasons. One of the reason that I have already started loving it is due to the fact that it brings media –handling features such as a built-in image editor. Although it remains to be seen how efficient and useful it actually is, but even then a nice initiative taken from the popular blogging platform. (Features discussed below)
Google Video has just added a couple of new useful filters for searching cartoons and slideshows. This means you can restrict your search results to cartoons/slideshows as you desire. The advantage of course is less time taken to retrieve the desired content and watch the desired media content quickly, but is it really the case? Below, we discuss how useful these new search filters really are.
As we all know that we can no longer upload videos to Google Video, however the service hasn’t been abandoned and it’s still actively developed. The focus has been switched to video search and Google Video powers YouTube Search.
People think that disabling the uploads to Google Video is a great mistake: probably the most useful videos hosted by Google Video are longer than 10 minutes and couldn’t be uploaded to YouTube. You can’t upload Charlie Chaplin’s “The Kid” to YouTube without splitting it.
To make the transition to YouTube easier, Google redesigned Google Video, removed some features that were rarely used and made the video player smaller.
Now a days video is the main source of conveying your message to public, for doing so there are many websites available, YouTube, DailyMotion and many more. One of them is Google Video as well. Recently Google Video has disabled the option of uploading videos and came with a new interface through which you can only see the video instead of doing anything else, you can just search for a video and see it.
Google Video removed the upload videos option and it’s now just a video search engine. As most of you are familiar with the YouTube and even if you think that YouTube is a better place to build an audience that watches your videos, Google Video had its unique appeal and it was a great service for uploading long-form videos.
There is one more change that Google Video updated the design for the search results pages and change the TV view mode to look more like the standard result pages for web search. The video player is much smaller and the results dominate the page as results shown on the searched on the page are more. Below the small video player, there’s a filmstrip that lets jump to different parts of the video, a list of related videos and an option to email the video.
According to sources the new interface has a lot of flaws: the video player moves as you scroll down, the list of related videos is not always visible, Google Video no longer displays ratings and there’s a lot of unused space.
