In continuation to last week's email about "ending playbacks of Google Videos on April 29" and providing instructions on how to download videos currently hosted on the platform. Google today posted an update on the works to make the migration off of Google Video easier.

"We're eliminating the April 29 deadline. We'll be working to automatically migrate your Google Videos to YouTube. In the meantime, your videos hosted on Google Video will remain accessible on the web and existing links to Google Videos will remain accessible," informs Google. If you want to migrate to YouTube now, here's how you do it:

We've created an "Upload Videos to YouTube" option on the Google Video status page. To do this, you'll need to have a YouTube account associated with your Google Video account (you can create one here). Before doing this you should read YouTube's Terms of Use and Copyright Policies. If you choose this option, we'll do our best to ensure your existing Google Video links continue to function.
