Google has just made its search results “universal” by integrating books, videos and documents, among others. So far, the feature which I find most enjoyable is video. I used to key in “youtube + ” in Google search box or go directly go to Youtube.com to search for videos, and then open the video clip. Now, searchers can go to either Google Video to search for previews, trailers and user-uploaded files.

google video results
Results show thumbnails of videos indexed in Google Video and Youtube. To view a result, click “Watch Video here”.

watch video
Click “Hide video” to watch other results or hide the video that is currently playing.


Search and watch by genre.

can't view video
Problem occurs when owners do not allow embedding of their videos. In that case, click the video’s thumbnail to watch directly on Youtube or Google Video.
