An anonymous reader writes “I received this email this morning: ‘Later this month, hosted video content on Google Video will no longer be available for playback. Google Video stopped taking uploads in May 2009 and now we’re removing the remaining hosted content… On April 29, 2011, videos that have been uploaded to Google Video will no longer be available for playback.’ They’ve added a download button for saving your content but it expires after May 13, 2011 and they encourage users to move the content to YouTube.” Not all is lost, though. Writes reader none295: “If you want to help archive Google Video, get some Linux machines running and join us in IRC (EFNet #archiveteam / #googlegrape).”
