Google Launches Video Playback Today?

John Battelle’s Searchblog: News: Google To Launch Online Video Playback This Monday

Google will not disclose the raw numbers of videos that have been
uploaded to date, but the company will make all those which were tagged
as “free” available for real time streaming through the VLC player,
which Google has modified and will make available for download Monday
morning. The company also intends to make its VLC code available to the
open source community as part of their Google code project.

BTW, in unrelated news, did you know Jim Romenesko makes $152,163 a year? From his blog? Me neither. Despite what other bloggers think, I feel it’s well deserved and it helps to show you what becoming a recognized must-read in a on demand subject is worth as a blogger.
