Youtube has been bugging me for MONTHS that I have files on Google Video that will be “taken down” soon because Google Video is going away. The funny part about this is, they sent out the warning about Google Video originally back in like, March or even earlier, which is when I took the opportunity to copy all of the important videos off the service and on to my Youtube Account.
Eventually the warning went away, and so did Google Video, until it popped back up a couple months ago inexplicably. That continued until I guess just today, when they decided that it would be a good idea to transfer my ENTIRE GOOGLE VIDEO ACCOUNT to Youtube without my input on the matter. So, today, 50+ videos got transferred to my account even though I didn’t want them.
"Inelegant" doesn’t even begin to describe what’s going on here.
Especially considering many of the videos were transferred from Google Video more than once. If you notice, even in the images I’ve provided, some videos are listed twice.
