    Default Google Video Uploads

    It seems google is jumping on the video bandwagon with its video upload service: https://upload.video.google.com/

    Google seems to be permeating into every aspect of the web, from advertising, blogs, email and now video. Anyone else concerned about this?

    not at all. they're the best at what they do. the web is an entirely free market, it's not as if we're tied in with them for any reason. That means that we all use G's services because they're great.

    Sure, the tinfoil hat mob are terrified of G, but *really*, what is there to be afraid of?

    It wasn't until I was directly touched by their policies that I've begun to question their dominance.

    Hmm, you have to option to charge people for viewing your videos...

    If you want to search through their current database the link is http://video.google.com

    Somewhat limited I find but it's normal since they only recently started up.
