The Google News Blog has announced that it is now incorporating YouTube videos with Google News results. As the blog post explains, "You'll see the prefix "Video" next to story titles, and clicking on these video links will open a video player directly on the page so you can watch the video right there."
While this was announced in August of 2007, it seems that forum members are starting to see this more often, though not enough. As one member writes:
It seems that YouTube videos within Google News is still not mainstream. Only a few carriers as of the August post (CBS, Reuters, and some Hearst TV properties) were offering video.
Meanwhile, the forum member suggests that it's possible that YouTube and Google accounts will be merged in the future, as he says that when you sign up for a new YouTube account, you're asked to confirm your Google account data, including Webmaster Tools information. It'd be interesting to see if this is incorporated in Google News results.
