Blogger Adds Video Uploads Feature

Posted on August 24, 2007

InfoWorld has an article that discusses Google's latest round of Blogger bugs. In addition to pointing out the need for "professional-grade uptime" from Blogger the article also talks about Blogger now allowing video uploads. This post on Blogger Buzz also discusses Blogger's video upload feature.

Today we are releasing video uploading to Blogger! This feature allows you to upload videos and create a video podcast with the same ease that we currently provide with photo uploading.

When you go to the Blogger post editor, you'll see a new button () next to the image uploading one. Just select a video from your computer, wait a few minutes for the upload and processing to occur, and voila! Now when you visit your blog, you will see something like this (of course without Tomo, the Blogger Akita):

The Blogger Buzz example features an uploaded video of the Blogger dog Tomo. Videos uploaded with Blogger are hosted by Google Video. However, Google says videos uploaded to Blogger are kept private and are not part of the Google Video search.
