Video Playback: Direct On Browser

The application of video on the internet will ever remain a killer app; Google Docs users have been availed the benefit of  accessing 2010 video memories uploaded via the document service directly in their browser, according to an official release on the company blog.

The memories from 2010 that users uploaded to their documents list can be viewed directly in the browser, as against the erstwhile application system whereby the Google Docs video player opens up in a new page requiring Flash installation. This latest feature comes as a New Year gift to users, and perhaps help stress the current position of video applications and real-time access capability of open web standards.

However, some newly uploaded videos may take a little more time before they are processed for viewing, also those uploaded earlier last year might not have been processed. Google has also made available the video formats that are supported by the new feature.

The procedure for watching videos through the new feature is simply thus: click a video file uploaded in your documents list and press play. We are still wishing all our readers and followers happy memories this New Year!
