Google Unveils Video Viewing Software (BIG DEAL: MICRO MARKETS FOR ARTISTS!)

Quote:
"Google Inc. unveiled a video-viewing channel on its Internet-leading search engine Monday, creating another media outlet that may open new moneymaking opportunities for a company already so profitable its stock has tripled to above $300 in 10 months"

"Watching the amateur and professional videos in Google's index requires free software available at http://video.google.com. The software, consisting of about 1 megabyte, won't do anything except stream Google's videos through the Internet Explorer or Firefox Web browsers.
"

This is really cool for artists and animators that want to show their work.

They accepted my old demo reel, which I just submitted as a test <here>.

It's nice that they allow you to see the video from various points, but I was surprised they don't let you play them full screen.

Interesting....

actually, if you double click the video, it will play full-screen.

This is a little OT but still in the same ballpark.
Last night I was installing some software and I installed Winamp 5 again. Just before clicking on the "Internet Radio" listing in the Media Library window, I clicked on "Internet TV" accidentally. Turns out that it's just that, TV shows, mostly. I'm sure they're "illegal" rips from TV, but there were quite a few channels that had independent films, shorts, student films, animation, etc. It was really cool! It seems like Shoutcast-based or something, but it could be a little avenue, like the Google video channel, to get "airplay" on independent projects. It's worth checking out, the Winamp TV I mean. I'll have to check out the Google TV channel also.

Well it is still in Beta. It's not flawless just yet.

I applaud Google for doing this. But I also can't help but admire DVD Jon for doing this today..
