Google lets you search for videos. The search is unusual in that it does not lead you to the original site. Google itself has caputured the videos and plays them for you using their own video system or You-Tube, which they bought out. Oddly you don’t seem to need to download any sort of viewer. Their plug-in allows you to search within the video using thumbnails. There are two big advantages to this:

  1. Usually Google has much higher bandwidth than the original site.
  2. Even after the original site drops carrying the video, Google presumably will continue to carry it.
I hope this additional competition improves the quality of other video plug-ins.

Google gvi format is copy protected so when you buy videos, you can view them on/line as often as you like, but only online.
