I’ve always said that Google Video just totally stinks. The interface is not good, the video streaming is bad and searching and sharing videos is just not as clear cut as it should be. YouTube.com did it the way video sharing should be done. It seems that Google would agree with me considering that talks are supposedly underway to buy YouTube.
The purchase only makes sense to Google if they want to be the authority in organizing and sharing media of all kinds. Lets see where it goes though. Google is all about simple interfaces…I wonder if they will re-tool the look and feel of YouTube.
