If you visit Google Video today, you might be missing some of the old features we had just a short while ago. It seems like we are missing videos categorized as "Movers & Shakers," "Hot videos," which showed most viewed, most shared and so on. Where did it go? Just take a look at the Web Archive of the March2008 Google Video and you will see it is missing a lot from what we currently see on Google Video.
Why did Google get rid of these features? You can no longer seem to see the Most blogged, Most shared, Most viewed, Movers & Shakers at Google Video. We know Google removed uploading to Google Video, but should that impact the other features? I guess so.
There is a very upset group of Google Video users ready to boycott Google over this.
