Google Video enhanced?

By Steve Outing

I can’t find news of it, but it appears that Google Video has been upgraded. A previous annoyance has been that after you uploaded a video, it was usually several hours (often, the next day) before the video was actually published so other people could view it.

Yesterday, the video upload service was down all day, but it came back today. I uploaded a video and was pleased to see that it was available for others to see right away. Fantastic! (I should note that the video I uploaded was not native Flash, so Google Video would have had to have done a conversion, since that’s the format used by the service.)

Has anyone seen news about this apparent upgrade?
