Just What the Doc Ordered: Google Docs With Video

Make your memos and shared docs more 'presentable' with Google Docs' latest ability to upload and share video. Instead of sending video links (which may even be blocked by company firewalls), just upload your video into Google docs and spread the message. Google allowed the ability to upload any kind of file into Google Docs except videos stored in browser. But now, they allow videos upto 1 GB and a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 (pretty impressive if I do say so myself).

Making memos more memorable

The types of files that are supported are:

  • WebM files (Vp8 video codec and Vorbis Audio codec)
  • MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (h264 and mpeg4 video codecs and AAC audio codec)
  • .AVI (many cameras use this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM)
  • .MPEGPS (MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio)
  • .WMV
  • .FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio) 

Flash is required to stream all of these files.
