Google Docs now lets you also play videos that're currently supported. Once you've uploaded your video to Google Docs, you can watch it with the Google Docs video player. Simply click the file from your Documents List, and the player opens in a new page.
Uploaded video files can be up to 1 GB, maximum resolution for playback is 1920x1080. The most common video formats that you can upload and play:
- WebM files (Vp8 video codec and Vorbis Audio codec)
- .MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (h264 and mpeg4 video codecs and AAC audio codec)
- .AVI (many cameras use this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM)
- .MPEGPS (MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio)
- .FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio)
Just click a video file you've uploaded to your Documents List, and the video opens in a new page that includes a video player. You will need to have Flash installed for the video player to work.
On the page that opens, you can also find additional information about the file, including the owner, whether the file is shared or not, and when the file was uploaded. You can also download previous versions of the file, but you can't view these versions in the player. If you'd like to play one of the older versions, you need to delete the more recent versions and wait for it to be processed.
