Silicon Valley Watcher: Exclusive interview with Google video platform director Jennifer Feikin “While Google wouldn’t provide any specifics on the number of uploads so far, Jennifer said, “We’re definitely pleased. We’re getting all different types of individuals uploading,” including some high-profile analysts. Undoubtedly, it seems that video will be another successful Google project, and Google does have some ideas on business models. For now, though, the project is very much in the collect-and-review phase.
“Video is very complicated. We’re trying to understand which formats people are using to author their content, which formats are used for what kind of content, and how big the files are,” Jennifer said. She adds that there are no time schedules in place for moving to the next phase of the project: searching, playback and purchase. To help with searching, uploaders are encouraged to provide transcripts of their content.”
