Google Video goes live

Google plans to announce on Tuesday changes to its Google Video service that will make it easier for people to submit video.

Now people who want to post their video clips can do so through a Web-based system without having to use special software. They also can view the clips instantly, said Peter Chane, product manager for Google Video.

Previously, people had to use the Google Video Uploader program to submit video and had to wait for the submission to be verified and go through an editorial review, he said.

People can send the Web address where the video is posted directly to friends for immediate viewing, but it won't be searchable through Google Video's search page until editors review it, Chane said.

Google Video also is launching a special promotion with Universal Pictures for the June 2 release of "The Break-Up," starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn. Google will post a trailer to the movie on the site and allow people to upload video clips related to their own break-ups.
