Google Won't Delete Content, Offers YouTube Migration Tool for Its 'Video' Site
The death of Google Video, at least as a video host, has been postponed after public outcry. Last week, Google announced that all videos still available on the site will be deleted at the end of this month. Unsurprisingly, most people didn't take the news very well and it seems that there are still plenty that care about the video site.
So Google is backing down and has dropped the time limit, it will not be deleting videos for the foreseeable future.
The company also addressed the second biggest concern, the lack of an easy way of transferring content to YouTube, with a dedicated and automated migration tool.
"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," Mark Dochtermann, engineering manager at Google, announced.
"In the meantime, your videos hosted on Google Video will remain accessible on the web and existing links to Google Videos will remain accessible," he reassured users.
