More info can be found at the link.

The Google Video embed button I added whenever ago will remain up until then, then it and all of the code associated with it will be removed.

Well, it was a nice feature while it lasted, since I doubt too many other forums bothered with it; considering the dominance of YouTube (and, if I recall, Google owns them anyway), I can see why Google is dropping its own video section.

(To be honest, the only Google Video I ever bothered with was the 3D rendering of the ending for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which, as it turns out, is on YouTube, anyway.)

EDIT: As it turns out, there are still Google Videos up and ready for embedding, so the Google Video tags and button shall remain.

So it would appear that Google Videos have been taken down.. again.

I've checked my bookmarks and the URLs give a false redirect to YouTube ("This video is unavailable"), while any embedded videos simply don't work.

I don't yet know if all or any of the videos have been transferred to YouTube, which I believe was the initial plan last year.

I'll keep the embed button up until I know whether or not this is permanent.

UPDATE — 1:39 PM
As it turns out, there are still some Google Videos remaining, including the "Sonic Adventure DX" video used in the embed button's help text.
