Google’s Blogger Adds Support for Video

Google’s Blogger blogging service is finally catching up with the times. It is now adding video uploading to the service, making it easy for folks who use Blogger to add video to their blog posts. On their blog, the Blogger team explains how this is going to work.

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!

For more instructions on how to upload videos and create enclosures, visit the Blogger In Draft blog. (via)

  1. Since, this new feature uploads Videos to Google Video, instead of YouTube; I’m quite unsure whether it requires prior approval and/or the Blogger’s Blogspot ID is tracked for a respective video?

    Moreover the interface lacks an “Embed this Video” option, which is very much essential to the Blogging community.

    Nevertheless, I’m still waiting for an advancement on the Podcasting front.

  2. Hmm, I would’ve thought that with their addition to YouTube allowing you to link your Google Account and your YouTube account they would have tried to do it through YouTube. I suppose this might be simpler for those without YouTube accounts.
